Activity Overview


Creating a timeline of the major events relating to the election of 1800 is a great way for students to understand the sequence of events in history and place them within historical context. Students should identify key moments in the political process and events surrounding the election itself (for instance, the ratification of the 12th amendment). Students will be able to identify and explain the major events that defined the election of 1800, providing a solid foundation of historical context for the election.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options and adjust the instructions accordingly.


Extended Activity

Have students create a timeline of events leading to another electoral result, whether it be in national, state, or local politics. This will allow students to gain better context for how events and ideas can shape and change an election. Furthermore, it will allow for historical comparisons between their selected election and the election of 1800.
