What educators are saying

I have used these timelines for second and third grade. They are very useful for a visual of a timeline.
I wanted some posters for my home classroom to use with my two kiddos (first and third) and mix in with teaching about history and geography. This was perfect! Thank you!


Add some pizzazz to your classroom this year! This creative resource came about as a special request for a teacher friend. She wanted a way to display a timeline with all her social studies units for the year for her 3rd grade classroom (CKLA).

As we worked on this unit, other ideas for activities emerged until we ended up with this final resource with 60 photo posters and related activities. I hope you enjoy using it as a learning tool in your classroom too!

The photo posters can be used in many different ways.

Some ideas:

✔Display them around the classroom in chronological order to refer back to throughout the year

✔Post them as a bulletin board display for each domain/unit

✔Display them as you work on each domain then add them to the timeline that circles around the classroom.

✔Use them to introduce each domain/unit

Timelines can be a confusing concept for younger students. There are several timeline activities included to help students grasp this concept. There are 3 different timeline activity pages included in this pack. I have included two different versions of each timeline. One is a cut, sort, and glue activity that matches the dates on the photo posters—great as an activity for centers. The other one is a blank timeline so students can write in their own dates and information for important historical events.

There are 60 Photo Posters for the following domains included:

✔World Rivers

✔Ancient Rome Civilization

✔The Vikings

✔Earliest Americans


✔Exploration in North America

✔Life in the 13 Colonies

This is a companion resource and instructional tool for Core Knowledge Third Grade-Engage NY classrooms.
