Record a Moment in Time

History, Reading, Art

Students design an accordian book of historic events. Students use art to tell a story and record an historic moment. Students analyze points of view in art. They identify visual clues to locate an event in time, and appreciate the influence history has on people today.

You can use an Assessment Rubric to assess students' mastery of the objectives.



  1. List key events in your region's history.

  2. Draw a picture of each event.

  3. Provide clues that locate your picture in time. For example:

  4. Write a caption for each picture.
