This timeline was created for a 6th Grade Ancient World History class that utilized DBQs as part of instruction. Dates in CE are blue, BCE are red, and when the event spanned both they are purple. An arrow is at the top of the box to help signal where on the line the event took place. I used duct tape to create my line and pinned the events as we learned them during the school year. This was a great visual display for my students and helped them understand how different parts of the world were connected. Included on the timeline: Rome, Greece (Athens & Sparta), China, India, the stone age, the silk road, Mesopotamia (Hammurabi), Egypt.
