A timeline is a visual representation of important historical events throughout time. Below is an example of timeline based on China’s history.

Today you will begin to research major events throughout Australia’s history (prior to the First Fleet through to Federation). You will use your research to design your own Australian timeline. Included in the timeline should be the first Australians, major European explorations of Australia, The First Fleet, Continued transportation, Port Arthur, Gold Rush, Eureka Stockade, Bushrangers and Federation. A sentence describing each event will be required.

Everyone will need to do a draft timeline before using Microsoft Word to present the timeline.
