Timeline of inventions and discoveries

I need some help with the following:
· Create a timeline that displays at least five significant discoveries made by humans prior to the 20th century, and five significant inventions made by humans prior to the 20th century. Neither should come from prehistory. Identify each item as a discovery or invention.

o A discovery, as defined here, is new knowledge that is uncovered about something that already exists. An example is J.J. Thompsonâ??s discovery of the electron in 1897. Consider fields like medicine, biology, botany, and astronomy.

o An invention is defined as the human creation of something new that can be replicated. The steam engine, invented by Newcomen in 1712, is an example.

· Include the approximate date of each discovery and each invention, as well as a short description, and the names of the principal discoverers and inventors.

· Arrange your list chronologically.

· Explain how the discoveries and inventions helped humans to understand their relationship with nature. Does the discovery or invention continue to be significant?

Thank you
