Product Description
If you are studying Canadian history, you might find this timeline a handy addition to your lessons. This part two printable covers the period of time from Confederation to today. {Need a Timeline for Pre-European contact TO Confederation?}

How to use it:

I designed this particular timeline to be able to be used within a 3-ring binder or duo tang, but feel that it can be used in a wall format or other creative idea just as effectively.

Each century has a two-page spread timeline. Place the line with a left and right side, hole punch, and add to your binder. (The ’50 of each century is in the middle of the page and actually has an arrow on each side. If this is confusing, feel free to use a black marker to fill in the section in the middle of the page to create a big, fat arrow.)

In between these pages, print out and cut off the top greyed portion of the event pages. Figure out which side of the timeline that even belongs on and make the picture face forward while the book is opened to that time period. Hole punch appropriately and add to the binder.

Each event includes a title, an arrow to show the time frame, a short explanation of that event, and a graphic.
