creating timelines for students. perhaps it can be a collective assignment. as we go through a time period i can ask students to ad to the timeline important facts, dates, events, that way its more interactive. could assign groups of students particular years in a decade and have them find pictures/information to create their section of the timeline. would be a good start or finish to a unit
Time-ray: Ancient Mesopotamia for 6th graders. Give each student an important event in the ancient Mesopotamia time period and have them research the event and draw pictures on a strip that represent their events. Students may write on the back of their strip the meaning of their pictures and present it to the class. The class is to place events in order on the ray from left to right. Great for chapter books, or all sorts of lessons! Kids love it and learn so much!
