What Do the Clues Tell You?

After the students have finished reading and highlighting clues, instruct them to discuss the readings within their groups and determine the historical order for the readings. To aid in their decisions, have students write the most important clues from each reading on the lined section beneath the text.

Distribute a copy of the "Timeline" student sheet to each group. Instruct students to cut out the three strips and tape them, end to end, in chronological order to create one long timeline strip. Then have students paperclip each reading onto the timeline in historical order.
