Grade: 3rd Grade
Subject: History Topic: Placing Events on a Timeline
Hello my third grade friends! Today we will be beginning a new history unit about comparing events that happened long ago versus events that have happened within the last few months. Timelines are a good way to show time passing and to show the order in which events have occurred! By the end of today, we will be able to place events on a timeline, in the order they occurred, through the use of a Jamboard, in order to show time passing.
Today, we will be using Jamboard to place events that happened earlier in the school year as well as events that happened today. By doing this, we will be able to show that we can organize events based on the order they happened. You will have access from your iPads to write your answers on a sticky note on the Jamboard. I want you to think back to something memorable that happened this year in school. What month did this happen in? Now, I want you to open Jamboard, write your answer on a sticky note, and place the event under/above the month that it happened
(The teacher will then allow the students to open up the Jamboard link. The students will write their event on the Jamboard under/above the month in which it happened. After allowing the students a few minutes to think of an event and write it on the Jamboard, the teacher will go through the timeline to double check all of the events to make sure they are in the correct order. If the school does not have access for all students to have their own device, they can either work with a partner or in groups. Similarly, if there is only technology offered for the teacher, the teacher can call on students and place the events on the timeline for the students on the Jamboard.)
A few minutes go by and edits stop on the Jamboard.
Alright my friends, we are going to go through the timeline together to remember the events that took place over the year! (Teacher goes through the Jamboard to make sure all the events are in the correct order and so students can reflect on their work) Great work today, historians! Next time, we will be looking at different events from the past and we will be able to place the events on a timeline so that we can remember when events took place and order them from long ago to today!
