Country Choice Interview

Timeline of Events

The purpose of this assignment is to build upon what you have already learned about your country!  You've studied statistics, "traveled" to some historical/cultural locations, and drawn maps of your country.  Now you can view your country in a historical perspective.   Some of the information you find you will have many connections to and other events will be completely new. 

Directions:  Research and plots 20/25 historical events for your country.  Include 20/25 dates of historical events in chronological* order with images or video for each one.  A bibliography citing all sources MLA styles is required.  Your project may be done as a Google Doc or a "Timetoast" timeline.  (Timetoast is very easy and fun to use!)  - Check out the "how to's" below:
