Do your students have trouble conceptualizing long spans of time?
This timeline activity great for your Ancient Civilizations lessons!
This product includes multiple options:
- Timeline of Ancient Inventions (16 events) and a blank page for you to add your own inventions
- Maps to draw where each invention was created
- Base timeline ("zoomed out" and "zoomed in")
- 15 timeline questions (created in Microsoft Word & fully editable)
It is an interactive timeline - there are 16 events that can be printed on cardstock or paper, and two large paper timelines that can be spread out on the floor. Students may arrange the events on the timeline alone or with a partner - perfect for your kinesthetic learners, or as a center activity!
The timeline is fun and colorful - I printed mine in color on cardstock and laminated to use for future years. It can also be printed in black and white if you wish to save ink.
I designed this short activity as a timeline review, and as a way to really help students interact with history.
In addition, the finished timeline could be displayed on the wall.
