This is a template for the timeline format in Instagram as of September 2018. It is designed to allow students to include multiple image with descriptions in order to storyboard or show progression of some event. It could be an individual or class-wide or even division-wide activity and could be done as a one-time assignment or an ongoing portfolio of their learning.
For example: I used this with my students to highlight key moments in the Atlantic Slave Trade and how its effects on people in both the continent of Africa and in North America with a focus on Canada. (this was 8th grade level).
The pattern include the top mini-bio section as well as the footer menu section. The middle page is all images allowing for you to include as many as you like. It prints on 8.5" x 14" paper and is intended to be cut in half lengthwise to be 4.25" wide.
The file include two formats - one allows you to edit size of "posts" and tweak the pages the second has each page as a full-page image to keep students from editing the layout. It comes as a PowerPoint format, but can be uploaded to Google sheets.
