Project Overview:

The Historical Perspectives: Create a Freeform Timeline project is designed to immerse students in history by having them create timelines from unique perspectives. Students take on the roles of various historical perspectives froma a specific historical period and plot events according to how those perspectives would have been perceived by them. This approach not only deepens understanding but also fosters empathy and critical thinking.
