Ancient History Timeline Project-Prehistory

Eighth Grade Ancient History Scholars are each creating a time map across the ages. They will add to this timeline as they encounter new cultures, and will add iconic images to illustrate the information they have learned. They will be able to better understand cause and effect and influences of one culture on another. They will also be able to recognize events happening concurrently around the world. It is hoped they will gain perspective and understand the relevancy of the history they are studying.

The ancient history scholars have create two timelines to demonstrate their understanding of the ancient world, a Prehistory Timeline and a separate Ancient Civilizations Timeline. Please visit both!
