Everyday the world changes sometimes it is caused by nature and sometimes it is man made here are some examples: NATURE: -Wind -Volcano -Earthquake -Water -Hurricanes MAN MADE: -Pollution -Buildings -Factories -Crops -Bombs -Technology -Medicine - Deforestation -Minerals As you see the world is always changing sometimes is for the better sometimes is for the worst.



PRIMARY EVIDENCE: There are many kinds of primary evidence like: newspaper and books and things like videos and things like that. Another good example about it is a dairy one of the most popular dairies is Anne Frank’s dairy she wrote it during world war two but that is another story.

SECONDARY EVIDENCE: Secondary evidence is more complicated lets give an example when you were born the doctor saw you at your birth so it is easy to ask the doctor(if he/she is still alive) what they tought about when you wre born you cloud also ask your parents. about it.


All around the world people are bias this means they only do what the person likes because they like them for example when you are voting for a president and you vote for one of them because they are your friends then you are being bias Have you ever heard “there are two sides to every story” thing? Do you know what it means? Well it means that all stories have the positive side and the negative side for example if a person killed an other person the person who was killed family would want the killer to die but the killer’s family would want him to live. The only way to know if the information is reliable is to let a person that doesn’t know decide lets go back to the small story shall we? Okay in the story the only person who can decide what happens to the killer is a judge he/she can decide what happens to the killer but sometimes that is not the most reliable way because sometimes they people give money to judge that is what makes the story bais.

Four events

The four events that time is put in they are political, economic, social, and technological (PEST for short) Political: to do war, power, government and rights. Economic: how people earn money and spend their money. Social: People everyday life at work and at home. Technology: to do with development in computer and medicine

Chronology The difference Century: one hundred years. Decade: every ten years. Period: time that passes.

AD and BC

Millennium: a thousand years.

AD stand for Anno Domino, which means after Christ .BC mean before Christ. Tis is the thing that divides the ages BC gets smaller though the ages like 500 BC happen before 1300BC .AD is different like lets give a close example 2010 happened before 2011.

What is chronology It is the order that the event happened like world war one was before world war two and the way things happen
