History around the world DISPLAY

This magnificent display showcases all of the amazing things history has to over around the world! To make this display I used a world map (purchased off Amazon) and then, using the cards provided for you here, attached string to show where these amazing events took place to create this impressive display. Each fact cards includes; Image Beautiful font for each place name A short paragraph (no more than a few sentences) summarises that event or history of the country This has been tailored to my school curriculum, but this would look incredible regardless if you do these topics. Examples include; China (Song dynasty) Baghdad (Islamic World) Afghanistan (Soviet invasion) Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) France (WW1, French Revolution) Germany (WW1, Weimar and Nazi Germany GCSE) Many places in America! (American West GCSE) - such as the Great Plains, Salt Lake City and more. Cuba (Cuban Missile Crisis) Titanic Egypt (Battle of El Alamein) Ireland (The Troubles) This display looks extremely impressive and I have had so many compliments on this, as well as causing a stir on social media with people who found it so impressive! To recreate the display as in my photos you will need to purchase a world map and string, however you could also place the fact cards on a display board or wall without a map and it would still look incredible!
