Timeline Project – Students will choose up to 9 events from the history of Mesopotamia. After researching and reading about those events they will add them to their timeline with sufficient detail to indicate something they have learned about each one. A scoring rubric has been created for students to guide their work. See the “assignment calendar” from 9/16/13 for a copy of the rubric.
