✏️Teachers like you are saying:

⭐⭐⭐⭐ This was just what I needed ! Easy to use! There was some overlap with events on the timeline, but that led to great discussion to what was going on at the time. Students were highly engaged with this activity. I only wish it was updated with a few recent events, but the event page had empty boxes to write in some of our own events.
