Using the ReadWriteThink timeline creator, create a timeline that has at least 5 major events from the last 20 years (1994 - present). Be sure to include the year of the event as the "Label", the title of the event as the "Short Description", and brief summary of the event as the "Full Description". I have included two sites to help you get started. Print your timeline or e-mail them to me when you are done.
2 sites to get you started:
1. This Day in History
