Do your students have trouble conceptualizing spans of time and chronological order of events?
This timeline activity is perfect for your American History lessons!
This product includes multiple options and parts:
- Large timeline of early American history events to hang in classroom
- Smaller "card" versions of timeline events to use interactively
- Base timeline ("zoomed out" and "zoomed in")
- 15 timeline questions (created in Microsoft Word & fully editable)
It is an interactive timeline - there are 38 events that can be printed on cardstock or paper, and two large paper timelines that can be spread out on the floor. Students may arrange the events on the timeline alone or with a partner - perfect for your kinesthetic learners, or as a center activity!
The timeline is fun and colorful - I printed mine in color on cardstock and laminated to use for future years. It can also be printed in black and white if you wish to save ink.
This product could also be used as a bulletin board decoration.
I designed this short activity as a timeline review, and as a way to really help students interact with history.
In addition, the finished timeline could be displayed on the wall.
