This activity includes materials for use with each of the FRONTLINE programs related to terrorism.
This activity will provide students with an opportunity to:
Prior to viewing, hand out the page below that matches the program you are viewing. During or after viewing, have students draw a pathway between events to show how they are linked. They can number events as they go, ending with a representation of links and sequence. Or, invite students to do the assignment "freestyle," with students explaining why they've drawn various lines, and inventing different kinds of lines to represent different kinds of relationships. Advanced students might be given a list of events from which to create their own drawings or webs rather than the page below.
