This term we are being historians. Our inquiry learning will help us discover what is still present from the past and how the past has influenced the present. To begin with we are having a focus on different skills that historians use. The first skill has been interpreting and creating timelines. After looking at a variety of timelines, we created a success criteria for making a great timeline. This included a title, events sequenced chronologically, labelling and creativity. We used this criteria to assist us in making Personal Timelines. This was a a very engaging task as we loved sharing photos from our past.
I wonder if you could make a digital timeline – using PowerPoint or a movie making app or website (I use Animoto a lot 🙂 )… I’d love to see them.
