What are Sequencing Activities? 

Sequencing activities require students to organize information learning into a time sequence and analyze patterns of historical events.  If students can master the art of sequencing they can better understand cause and effect patterns and relationships between events.  

Why should I plan for students to complete activities that have them sequence events? 

  1. Standards-Based Teaching: Sequencing is a Power Standard that crosses all grade levels and content areas. 
  2. Bloom's Taxonomy Level:  Builds knowledge by sequencing and then going into the category of analysis by explaining a key event from the timeline.  
  3. DOK Level: Collect and Display events in sequential order falls under DOK Level 2, and Investigating an events falls under DOK Level 3.  

How do I have the students to go to a deeper level of understanding after sequencing activities? 

  • Have students analyze the cause and effects of several events they just sequenced. 
  • Have students create a visual timeline of events. 
  • Have students research key events from the timeline and write essays on the historical significance then and now.
