This timeline maps out the 6th grade curriculum for the year by separating the time periods into 5 ages: Prehistory, Ancient Civilizations, Classical Ages, Middle Ages, and Renaissance. It also teaches the concept of time dating, timeline skills, and BC and AD meanings. Create a copy with blank squares so students can write in the answers with you. They can keep it all year long adding information as the year goes on. I also used it as an assessment on their test so they could remember the time periods and when they occurred.
