When most of
us think about birthdays we celebrate in February, we naturally think of
our two Presidents, Washington and Lincoln. But many more famous Americans
were born in that month. We will look at several of them and find out more
about them and their contributions.
February Timeline project will consist of two tasks. Task One will have you
picking 5 famous Februarians, finding out when they were born and making your
own timeline showing their dates of birth. Task Two will have you choosing
one of the five to research more in depth. You will use that information to
present your information as a:
- Concept Map in Inspiration (Visual/ Spatial,
