Timeline: Paleo to Greece

You are to construct an original timeline.  The timeline must do the following things:

  • The timeline must include the required artworks, artistic periods, and historic dates listed below.
  • The timeline must demonstrate the sequential nature of some of these events.
  • The timeline must also demonstrate the overlapping nature of some of these events.  How you choose to do this is up to you.
  • The timeline must include dates/centuries/time markers that place each period and each artwork in the correct time frame.  How you choose to do this is up to you.

Your timeline should be clear, concise, and regardless of how it is constructed, submitted electronically through an email or link.  PowerPoint, Word document, jpeg file, Prezi, or even an online timeline creator is fine.  No hard copies. Your textbook does have a timeline at the end of each chapter, which may be helpful.

If you have never seen/used Prezi before, I would be glad to show you some examples in class or at tutoring.

This is a formative grade and is due by Monday, September 22nd, at 11:00 p.m.  Your product will be evaluated not only for its thoroughness and correctness, but also for its clarity and originality.  Your submission should be sent to my school email.
