Los Angeles History Timeline


1. Choose an area of California with which you are very familiar. I recommend the city you live in or grew up in because you will already have knowledge and can easily get to their library.  2. Research this city enough to have a good understanding of its history.  3. Create a Geographic Timeline for this area/city. a. This will include a minimum of 10-12 events (be sure to evenly space the chosen events), situations, important moments, etc. that were significant in the development of the area/city. b. For each “moment”, include a date(s) and a description of why this situation/person is significant to the area/city (see examples below). c. Include geographic causes/effects that influenced the development of the land. Explain how the land changed over time. You are telling a story of how the land became what we see today. d. Start with the Native Californians and end with today.  4. As you create this “land” timeline, focus on the overall development of the area/city and who was responsible for this development. Consider the perspectives of each group of inhabitants and how they viewed the land they were influencing 5. Include at least one detailed map of your area/city and two pictures (one historic and one current) as visual samples of how the land has changed. The map should be detailed enough to read road names. – Good example of entry: In 1845 Mr. Caldwell bought part of this land from the rancho and used it for grazing cattle as well as growing wheat.  – Bad example of entry: In 1845 Mr. Caldwell bought the land. Again, show a cause/effect relationship between EACH entry and how it affected/changed the land
