You must include a minimum of three significant events (either positive or negative) for each country. Write these headlines and dates in the packets provided in class. You will later select one headline from each country to include in your timeline.

You must include pictures on your timeline. (A minimum of five)

You must rank the significance of each event you include on your timeline.

Everything above the center line will be labeled +5 through +1. Everything below the horizontal line will be labeled -1 though -5.
Now label the horizontal center line beginning with May, 2010. Include every month up to May, 2011.

Determine the significance, either negative or positive, of each historic event.
