Positive/Negative World Timeline and Map Project:
Create a Positive/Negative Timeline covering the past year.
Include 20 the following countries:
Democratic Republic of Congo
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.
For example, I might include this as one of my top news stories for Norway:
You must include pictures on your timeline. (A minimum of five)
You must rank the significance of each event you include on your timeline.
You must locate, shade, and label each country on a world map. You map will be turned in when you turn in your timeline.

More detail: You will need construction paper, graph paper or tag board for this project. Draw a line down the center of your paper. Draw a vertical line down the far left side of your paper. 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.
