Description of how to implement in the class: This activity will be completed in
groups of 3-4 students. They will each logon to Timeliner and have to recall the dates
of events occurring during he American Revolution and the revolutionary movement.
This activity will reinforce readings the students have already completed. By having

visual of the actual dates each event occurred. This is a great application for the
students to do.

until the students are allowed to actually put information on their own Timeline. To
move to a level 3 and possibly to a level 4, students will be encouraged to collect info
for the dates and then analyze the order in which they fall.
Description of the sample BBPT file provided *: The timeline that the students
create will be on the same topic as listed above. My sample will show the students
and be a model as to what is expected of them.
