Portfolio Project 7: Timeline of My Life
Create a timeline of your life from birth to age 99. This can be a collage, a multi-page presentation, an outline, or any other form that you might want to use to imagine a life for yourself far into the future. For purposes of this project, you are required to assume you will live to at least the age of 99 and that you will live a productive, positive, healthy life. Imagine the education, the work, the career, the family life, the travel, and other adventures you may have over the years and present them in an imaginative way with illustrations as well as words.
Turn in Timeline of Your Life before the end of the week of the due date to receive full credit.
