History road

A history road is a type of timeline; you put events in the order they happened, but you don't have to show the even passing of time. A history road:

  • takes the form of a widening road coming towards you
  • has the oldest event at the beginning of the road
  • may have symbols or sketches to go with the events.

Draw a history road to show what you believe to be six key events in the Gallipoli campaign, from the landings in April to the evacuation in December. The Gallipoli guide, which can be found in www.anzac.govt.nz, is a particularly useful resource for the purposes of this history road.

Make sure things are in chronological order, and use sketches and/or symbols to go with each event or date.
