Answer Key

?_Geography Yukon Timeline

The third column of the student worksheet requires students to draw inferences from the events they record. Some students may need assistance with this.

           Before students discuss their timelines with each other, remind them that there are no "right or wrong" answers, since all the dates and events listed in the article are important! However, it is important that they be able to state their reasons for including an event. Explain that discussing their reasons with other students helps clarify their thinking, and that it's okay if they want to adjust their timelines following the discussion.
