Examples:

WHAT or WHO:

  • Prehistory: period of History.
  • Megalithism: constructions (with large stone blocks).
  • Tigris: river.
  • Persian Wars: military conflict between Persia and the Greek poleis.
  • Christopher Columbus: sailor and explorer.
  • Isabella I The Catholic: queen.

WHERE:

  • Prehistory: all over the world.
  • Megalithism: in the Atlantic coast of Europe.
  • Tigris: in Mesopotamia
  • Persian Wars: in Greece
  • Christopher Columbus: Italian (from Genoa)
  • Isabella I The Catholic: of Castilla

WHEN:

  • Prehistory: between the appearance of the first hominids (4,2 million years ago) to the invention of writing (3250 BC)
  • Megalithism: from the end of the Neolithic to the Age of Metals.
  • Tigris: (not needed)
  • Persian Wars: at the beginning of the 5thcentury BC (499-449 BC).
  • Christopher Columbus: the end of the 15th
  • Isabella I The Catholic: 1474-1504 (end of the 15thcentury).

WHY or HOW:

  • Prehistory: divided into Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Age of Metals. It is characterised by the absence of written texts.
  • Megalithism: works of religious character (animistic) or burial sites. The main examples are menhirs, alignments, cromlech and dolmens.
  • Tigris: around which the Mesopotamian civilization developed – Here we can include WHEN.
  • Persian Wars: for the control over Asia Minor. The Greeks poleis won.
  • Christopher Columbus: discovered America in 1492, financed by the Crown of Castilla. This meant the beginning of the Spanish domain over America.
  • Isabella I The Catholic: conquered the Nasrid Kigdom of Granada in 1492. She was married to Fernando II of Aragón (Catholic Monarchs), which meant the unification of Castilla and Aragón under the same king.
