Sixth grade students form human timelines as part of a lesson in social studies class. Teacher Sarah Mast tasked each student with looking up a random event and recording the date. Events could be B.C.E. (BC) or C.E. (AD). Students then had to arrange themselves in order of occurrence. “This was an interesting project,” says Mast. “Some dates didn’t specify BCE or CE and students had to infer the date based on the context of the event – it was a great depth of knowledge exercise!”
