This is a 23 page document that contains years, graphics, and a brief description of 46 different major events in American History. Each page contains two different event mini-posters that can be cut apart and laminated. I placed them around the border of my room, estimating the distance between the events. I used bright orange curling ribbon to make the line for the timeline. When we read about an event in U.S. history, we can refer to this timeline to get a sense of what was happening at that time. Additionally, you could add a small die-cut circle with the year and description of events you learn about throughout the year, and tape them near the spot on the timeline!
