This worksheet helps students to understand Cause and Effect:
Something happens in the present be-CAUSE of something that happened in the past.
With this timeline, students will see how past and present are connected. They not only go backwards in their thinking, but forward as they think about the future effects of something happening in the Present. (The "Present" soon becomes the "Past," and the "Future" becomes the new "Present." On and on the timeline continues.....)
Students choose events in their own life to write about as well as events in another person's life.
