Sequencing is a vital process skill in Social Studies, and a great way to review multiple eras of content! In order to put unrelated events in chronological order, students must be able to correctly place an event within a historical era that was studied. They must also have a sense of cause & effect within the timeline that was studied. It can be more difficult than it sounds!
This activity is completed digitally via Google Slides. Students will drag and drop the boxes on each slide to put 4 events in the correct sequence. Then, they will type to identify the era in which each event happened (see preview image). There are 12 unique slides set up in this download.
This activity is currently set up to review important info from all eras of U.S. History to 1877 (8th Grade Texas TEKS). HOWEVER, the drag-and-drop boxes are all editable, in case you want to tweak the events that I have included. There is also a completely editable template included, in case you teach a different history subject such as U.S. since 1877, Texas History or World History. You can use the template to fill in important events for your content too!
This activity also makes a great BELLRINGER activity throughout the year, if you use the editable template to fill in any events that you want to review!
If using this activity for U.S. History to 1877, download my Free Timeline of Eras posters to go with it!
