Title: Time After Time
Unit Plan Overview: The unit will focus on ordering common events by times, days, months, steps, or events.  Students will utilize biographies and books on national symbols to read and interpret timelines.  Groups will use historical text and primary sources to create timelines by using rulers to measure equal-spaced points.  Students will also create a timeline to reconstruct the history of their school staff and create individual timelines to reconstruct a history of their own past. This unit was created as part of the ALEX Interdisciplinary Resource Development Summit.
