Timeline Activity

2575214144

The earth is over 4 billion years old.  Life first originated in the oceans 3.4 billion years ago.  The dinosaurs died out 65 million years in the past.  Human recorded history stretches back 10,000 years in time.  This assignment is designed to give students an introduction into global marine/terrestrial development from a scientific perspective.

Task:  You are required to create a representation of historical events related to the study of life.  The representation must be in the form of a timeline, but the timeline can take on a variety of styles:  prezi, drawing, power point, video, song, clock, newspaper, PSA, etc… Use your creativity!  Your timeline does not have to be a straight line.

The assignment and rubric can be found here.

See this example of a power point.

These are also good examples of prezi’s:

  1. Dayne (not exactly the same assignment – his teacher made changes to my assignment, but they are very close to one another).
  2. Josie

 

Due on February 13 at the start of class!
