- Demonstrate how to use the app and create a timeline to the students
For my class, we had the students brainstorm 14 personal, school, community or world events at home with their parents. The students wrote these events down on the piece of paper and brought it back to school. Therefore they had all of the events and dates in front of them, when creating a timeline.

- Use the 14 personal, school, community or world events, that you brainstormed with your parents, to create a timeline that is in chronological order on the iPad
