This Living History Timeline activity & project also includes:
As part of a living history research project, learners research a chosen historical figure that they will study and physically represent in a gallery walk. This resource includes a project description, letter to parents, rubric, and sample student work.
- Ask community members, other classes, and parents to join your living history timeline event, as an audience can encourage greater motivation and attention to detail amongst students
- Consider the age and maturity level of your students when assigning historical figures to research (for example,it may be a difficult process for fourth and fifth grade students to personify a former slave)
- Engaging and meaningful learning experience
- Documents can be downloaded and edited
