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

In world cultures, sixth grade students learn about Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and China. Challenge them to create a structure inspired by the ancient civilizations they are studying (repeat for each unit).
