Learning American History Through Movies & Free Timeline

Learning American History Through Movies & Free Timeline
Movie Homeschooling I could not find a chronological list of movies of American History so I made the one below. First I created a timeline from 1630 to 2000 into 12 eras and listed the most important people and events. (You can download a 8.5×11 printable version below. ) Then I found period movies for each time period listed below (I will continue to add to this list). NOTE: The timeline is copyrighted. Please use for personal use only. Then we made a timeline on a white board and used sticky notes to record people and events as we watched movies (the timeline is not just for movies but to record any American events we learned about during reading or other subjects). Where or How to Get the Movies Try searching your TV for shows to record on TV.

Beyond the History Textbook: Exploring History: Conclusion I hope this has been an illuminating experience for everyone! I also hope that we have seen that history is much more than the condensed "version" we see in the form of textbooks.

Let's recap the main points and concepts we learned in this WebQuest:

The Universe - Curriculum Center An activity you can use in the classroom In the 1920s astronomer Edwin Hubble used the red shift of the spectra of stars to determine that the universe was expanding. By carefully observing the light from galaxies at different distances from Earth, he determined that the farther something was from Earth, the faster it seemed to be moving away. This relationship has become known as Hubble's Law, and it's just one piece of a bigger puzzle known as the Big Bang theory.
