          A. Select an event from the timeline. 

           B. Go to Google Images , and look for a picture that accurately refects the event you have chosen.

2. Once you have successfully done this click on this link for WIKIPEDIA and read about why this event is important in history. (Make sure that you have a date in history when this event happened.)

3. In your own words write a caption (No more that a single paragraph) for your image that includes the date of the event, a basic description of the event and why it is considered to be an important event in history. (see example below.

HOMEWORK !

Follow the directions above, but this time find an image of a famous person from history along with a caption (no more than one paragraph) stating  the person's dates of birth and death and one thing he/she did that in your opinion justifies their place in history. Just as you did in class, send this to me by email.
