Interested in having students create their own video timelines on a subject you’re studying or a subject of their choice?  Then check out Teacher Tool 642 below.

In addition to the detailed lesson plans and activity ideas included with the Teacher and Student Tools below, here’s a  quick suggestion for use of this video:

  • Before viewing the video, have students brainstorm a list of events related to time (i.e.:  invention of the wrist watch) and then see which events are included in the timeline video.  For events not included, have students research to learn when they happened and what occurred.
