The State of the Family Timeline
About the The State of the Family Timeline Lesson
Create and interpret a timeline listing historical events and family celebrations using one calendar year.
• Concepts of time and chronology of historical events and family celebrations
1. Students will write a list of their family celebrations during a one calendar year period with the help of the parent[s]/guardian[s]. The list should include family member birthdays, parents wedding anniversary, religious events and other family-related activities celebrated throughout the year. Students will bring photographs of family members to mark on timeline [i.e. A photograph of the student?s mother next to the mother?s birthday on the timeline].
2. The teacher will provide a list of annual state holidays for each student.
