"The Favorite Thing" Timeline Project
BACKGROUND: Students have already done preliminary research and data collection regarding their selected "Favorite Thing." This assignment takes this research further, putting information regarding the Favorite Thing into an attractive TIMELINE format.
ASSIGNMENT: This assignment will involve students creating a TIMELINE that illustrates the history of their FAVORITE THING, as researched in the paper at the start of the quarter.
THE TIMELINE: Students will use a TIMELINE format to ILLUSTRATE all of the important changes and dates in their FAVORITE THING, from the very beginnings of the THING to the present day.
This will require that you sign up for a free account, which you can do using your school Gmail address, use your email address as your username and email, I recommend using your school network password (birthday) as your password to the site. MR. B. CANNOT RECOVER THIS INFORMATION FOR YOU, IF YOU FORGET IT!.
We do not have a CLASS CODE for this project, just leave that space blank when you register!
As often happens when given a project to complete in the workplace, you do not have a lot of instruction on how to use this timeline creator. You will need to experiment with how to add events (stories), titles, events, images, colors, backgrounds, etc. THIS IS PART OF THE PROJECT! Do not ask for help from Mr. B. until you have tried EVERYTHING!
