Connection!to!Standards!

2nd'grade'learners'are'expanding'on'their'abilities'to'make'connections'between'two'
individuals/events/ideas'(1st'grade'standard'RI.1.3),'and'now'see'connections'between'longer'series'of'
historical'events'and'ideas'(2nd'grade'standard'RI.2.3).'A'timeline'will'scaffold'their'understanding'of'these'
timeIbased'connections.'Their'search'for'information'(facts,'images,'video,'etc.)'across'digital'and'traditional'
texts'will'allow'them'opportunities'explore'nonfiction'and'historical'fiction'texts'using'text'feature'(RI.2.7);'
and'adding'annotations'to'this'timeline'will'allow'them'to'show'deep'understanding'of'2nd'grade'tier'2'
vocabulary'associated'with'the'timeline'topic'(RI.2.4).'Overall,'this'project'will'bring'scholars'understanding'
to'life'because'they'will'be'authors'of'an'image'that'helps'readers'understanding'of'how'events/people'
connect'with'one'another'through'timeIbased'and'cause/effect'relationships.'
