Make US History interactive! This timeline includes 92 dates from the Native Americans through Westward Expansion (see preview for specific dates/events).
Timeline with 92 dates/events (including over $60 worth of clip art!)
Timeline aligned with Scott Foresman's Our Nation curriculum
Editable timeline cards-add your own dates/events (PPT file)
Date cards to place on your timeline
Silhouette file with timeline dates (cut them out in vinyl!)
There are two ways to use this product. The first is to put it up as a static timeline that you refer to throughout the year as dates/events are taught.
The second is to put the dates/events up as you teach them, or put some up at the beginning of the year and then add other dates occasionally.
If you use Scott Foresman's Our Nation curriculum to teach 5th grade US History, there is a version of the timeline included that specifies the 'fill in the blank' timeline dates student are asked to complete in their workbook. This version is called the 'redline' version in the zipped file, as all the fill-in-the-blank dates are outlined in red. In our classroom, students fill in the wording for the date in their workbook timeline, and then we place the event card for that date on the timeline as a class.
