Below are some photos of our completed timeline! Can you see some of the connections that the class made to the inventions and these new words on their pink post-it notes? Some of the students were surprised by the dates of some inventions and they wrote those down onto the orange post-it notes.
We are a group of 8 and 9 year olds who are kind, fun and imaginative!
