Today you will continue to design graphic organizers on Inspiration8/9. Please create a Personal Timeline and Family Tree in a digital format. You must create these from scratch using Inspiration 8/9.
To start, use a blank piece of paper to list your birthday, list all the schools you have attended, list any significant events in your life (birthdays, deaths, weddings, graduations, holidays, family trips, honors, awards, or any other events you can remember) and the dates they happened. Open Inspiration 8/9 and open a New Blank Document. Begin to drag boxes into the timeline and label them in order. Once you have created your first box with a date underneath, you can now select the box, copy and paste a new one next to it, and link them with an arrow. Continue until you have listed all the events up to today's date. You need to list 10-15 events to complete the project.
For the Family Tree, make a complete list of all of your parents, step-parents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, grandparents, and any other family members you can think of. Now begin dragging in boxes and labeling them with each person's name and date of birth (if you know it). Now list weddings in text between married couples. Make sure to line up each placemarker with others in the same generation. Make sure you include extended family (Aunts, Uncles, Brothers, Sisters, Etc.) I would like you to do your best to include at least 3 levels of your family tree. These should include siblings, parents, aunts & uncles, grandparents, and anyone else you might know. Once you have your Timeline and Family Tree on one document, Go To FILE and PRINT and save it to the desktop as a PDF File. Open your email and attach the PDF File to an email to me for credit.
See the sample below for some more clarity. Good Luck!
