Oklahoma Academic Standard 3. The student will understand that history relates to events and people of other times and places. 

Objective 3.3 Use words and phrases. such as before and after, as they relate to chronology and time in order to explain how things change.

In a Nutshell

The initial steps to identifying causal relationships between two or more events can be encouraged by expecting students to use specific vocabulary related to such relationships. This understanding can lead to more complex understandings of how people and our environment change over time.
