12 ) Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text. [RI.2.3]

The lesson will focus on observing and creating timelines. Teacher will show students example timelines. Students will state things that they notice from the sample timelines. Teacher will read *American Symbols: The Lincoln Memorial* by Terri DeGezelle. Teacher and students will work together to create a timeline based on *American Symbols: The Lincoln Memorial* by Terri DeGezelle. Finally, students will break into groups and work to create a timeline with other American Symbols books.

The lesson will focus on creating a timeline. The teacher and students will work together to collect data from teachers around the school. Using this data, students will work to complete a class timeline and formulate questions to ask others about their completed timeline. This lesson will require four 30-45 minute sessions to complete.

This lesson will focus on creating timelines. Students will use important dates from their lives to create a personal 5 event timeline. Students will use rulers to measure equal spaces for their timelines. This lesson will require two 1 hour sessions. The first lesson will include the lesson introduction, work on timelines and time for formative assessments as students work. The second session will be used to complete timelines, share projects, and complete exit tickets.
