Quick Ideas for Using our Timelines of History Videos:

  • Use the videos to make cross-curricular connections with the topic areas highlighted in each video.
  • Use the videos with lesson plans you create that have students develop their own timeline videos on topics you are studying in class or they choose on their own.
  • Provide the videos for students to view independently to satisfy their own curiosity/interest in the topic highlighted.
  • Use the videos with lesson plans you create that have students take a particular event(s) from one or more of the videos to research in more depth and then create a new timeline video with events related to what they learned through their research.
  • Share timeline videos that students create on the school district website or other public forum of your choice.
