They were children - Google Cultural Institute In July 1942, nearly 14,000 Parisians were arrested by French police and, for the most part, assembled at the Vélodrome d’Hiver, simply because they were Jewish. Among them were many children. More than half of the 11,400 Jewish children deported from France between 1942 and 1944 were Parisians.

ChronoCards Resources You'll need these narration tracks to play Chrono Scouts. They set up each game, provide a count-down clock, and periodically interrupt with new missions or events for players to react to. The videos also make the game easier to play in a classroom setting. We recommend starting with Track #1 the first time you play. If you'd rather download the audio directly, you'll find that option below the videos.

Timeline Timeline allows students to create a graphical representation of an event or process by displaying items sequentially along a line. Timelines can be organized by time of day, date, or event, and the tool allows users to create a label with short or long descriptive text. Adding an image for each label makes a timeline more visually appealing. Add, drag, and rearrange items as needed. Saving capability allows students to return to their work and make revisions, and they can share their final work via e-mail. For additional ideas on how to use this tool outside of the classroom, see Timeline in the Parent & Afterschool Resources section.

Along with other traces of ritual activity at the top of Nasca watersheds, the discovery led him to propose that one of the main purposes of the Nasca lines was related to the worship of mountain deities, including Cerro Blanco, because of their connection to water. Recent research has bolstered the hypothesis.
