Awesome Resources

My students and I thoroughly enjoyed using this resource. It is both student and teacher friendly. The article is very descriptive and allows students to visualize the events that are taking place. The 3 correlating activities are each in a different format (matching, fill in the blank, & short answer), allowing the activities to be utilized according to students’ ability level.
