Organizing Information - Social Studies Examples

History is all about putting things in chronological order. But so is geography, since land ownership, content and even location changes over time. There was a time when forests covered most of North America, and a time when coal was used by the British as their main source of energy. Following specific events in time order helps us to see patterns and make sense of changes. It also helps us identify how things in the past have led to the world we have today. Let's try some examples!
