Matching and chronology ( 40-50 points)
Matching: You will have to match terms to the provided definition. All the terms will come from the term sheet posted on Moodle and covered in class. The definitions are generally very short and concise. You will probably have between 10-15 of these to identify. Ex: Battle of Gettysburg would match up with US Civil War Battle of July 1863 Chronological section: You will be given a list of empires, kings, or events and will need to places them in chronological order—you will probably be given two of these to do. These will also come from the term sheet.
