Use credible sources for this assignment. Newspaper articles are a good source of information of historical events that have occurred. You can do a Google search as well. Then, assign red, yellow, orange, and green to each box. Use green for event or target not likely, yellow for unknown, orange for knowledge but missing something, and red for highly likely.
