What can we learn from putting events in order? Let’s explore sequencing events through videos, online resources, activities, and fun projects.
What would happen if you got dressed and brushed your teeth before you got out of bed? Does that even make sense? There is usually an order to the way things happen.
Let’s explore sequencing events through videos, online resources, activities, and fun projects.
Let’s explore the history and development of civilization using circle maps and sequencing.
1. Use the Graphic Organizer - Circle Map. found in the Downloadable Resources in the right-hand sidebar, to take notes about the history of civilization.
In the center circle, write History of Civilization. You will write things you learn from the video in #2 of this section. You may also draw illustrations to help you remember. A suggested answer key can be found on the Sequencing the History of Civilization Notes and Answer Key also found in the Downloadable Resources in the right-hand sidebar.
Watch How Do You Use a Circle Map? (below) to learn how to use a circle map. (Note: You will be sequencing these events in the Got It? section. Just write anywhere in the circle map for now.)
2. Watch the The History of Civilization for Kids: How Civilization Began (below) to learn about the history of civilization. Pause the video as you learn something new and write it in the circle map.
When you are finished watching the video, share the information you learned with a friend or family member. Use the following questions to guide your thoughts on the circle map.
3. Watch the Understanding Sequence video (below) to learn more about sequence of events. Notice key words for sequencing events, such as:
After watching the video, sequence at least six events of your own day. Use the Graphic Organizer - Flow Chart (Downloadable Resoucres) to map your day. You might write something like the following:
