Apartheid Timeline

You will be given a card with important events that occurred in South Africa from 1652, when the Cape Colony was established, until 1994 when Nelson Mandela was elected President.

On poster paper draw a timeline including each events found on your card, and other events that occurred in your time period that you may find relevant.  (Make sure your line goes right across the middle of your page so that it can be connected with other groups)

You are not to simply copy the words found on your card. You must either rewrite the events in your own words and find at least one source to explain the each event. Make sure to include a combination of primary and secondary sources.

If necessary, include maps and graphs to show new political boundaries or the locations of major events.

Include your bibliography at the back of your poster.

You will have both periods today to work on your timeline.
Due Friday.
