Activity 1 is about developing a sense of chronology. Most young people have a large number of facts in their brains, acquired from many different subject areas. This timeline activity lets children think about the order in which things happen.
Ellis spent nearly 2 hours looking at the timelines to find the events in the pictures and then put them in the correct order with his Mum. He picked the digital watch to write about because he didn’t know anything about them and neither did his mum, so a lot of interesting research was required.
Ellis clearly spent a lot of time researching about the digital watch, his report included information about the first ever solid gold watch in 1972 to what countries use watches to play games today.
