As the 5th grade navigated the perspectives of loyalists and patriots and the events leading up to the American Revolution in their classrooms, in LMC classes completed a comprehensive timeline that spanned the Proclamation of 1763 through the Declaration of Independence and beyond to several of the important battles. The timeline was completed in groups. Each group was assigned a time period. First they brainstormed a list of important events that occurred during those years, and then each chose an event to research and write about on a shared Google document. Next they input their information onto the online Timeline at tiki-toki.com, where they also added a picture and caption and a link for further information. Below is a smaller version of Mrs. Anderle's class timeline. To see the full version including "3D", go to the Student Project pages.
