Entertaining World History Review for Older Teens

I'll admit, I spend my fair share of time on Facebook, but I know it's not nearly as much as some of my teen students.  A friend posted this link the other day: and I thought it was hysterical.  I think it would make a really fun way to review world history with an older teen.  I'd say for any teen, but the language is definitely a concern for younger kids.  I think older teens though would find it entertaining and it does a nice job of making connections and demonstrating the continuity of certain recurring themes.  Because it's a summary chronology, it would also help students see the connections between events and get a better grasp of cause and effect through the ages.  Sometimes, a fun little survey like this, is just the thing for helping kids understand how history fits together.  They'll like the humor and benefit from the history review.
