Social Studies Timeline Project

A new Social Studies Timeline project was assigned to students today.  This project is only applicable for students who are in my Social Studies class (a few students attend reading pull-out and therefore are not in Social Studies class).  Students were provided with a large white paper to do the project on, however you are more than welcome to use a larger poster board for the project as well.  Students will receive a rubric for the project on Wednesday 10/5/11.  Students are expected to turn the rubric in with the project on Tuesday, 10/11/11 in order to receive full credit.

PROJECT DUE DATE:  TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2011
