I used this timeline activity as an extension for students who were interested in learning more about famous Americans. I also used it as a way to integrate reading, writing and social studies in my classroom. The two sheets are similar except that page 2 has students study a famous American from the second-grade Virginia social studies SOL 2.11, and page 3 opens the activity to any famous American. I had students create their timeline on another sheet of paper.
This activity is part of a Famous American bundle available here
