The earlier students are introduced to the concept of time the better their future history studies will be. Chronology may be the most important history skill which is why Chronology for Elementary Students is going to be crucial to those little learners.

Chronology means to arrange dates and events in order. This simple activity is a way to let students use their new number skills in history. Students will put the dates in order. Students can tell us a story through dates (ex: mommy was born in 19xx. Mommy and daddy met in 20xx. I was born in 20xx. I will graduate in 20xx).

Dates included are 1900 – 2044 which would allow you to have students identify or calculate their high school graduation dates.

However, let’s not forget how valuable it is to know the vocabulary commonly used when studying history. 14 vocabulary and definition cards are included to help students learn and remember words such as year, decade, and century.

This resource is also Common Core Aligned for grades K - 2! Check out the preview for a list of the standards aligned in the lesson.
