This product contains events based on Tennessee 4th grade social studies standards as well as the years 1000 - 2000 in increments of 100 years. I constantly refer to our timeline while I'm teaching! The file is a PDF.
I use sentence strips for the base of my timeline. As we talk about each social studies topic, I add that topic to the timeline. This allows my students to have visual of when the event or topic took place relation to others throughout history. I have also googled a few images to print and add to the timeline to give it some more pizzazz. These are not included in this purchase, but easily found online.
Please note that some of these events are out of order in this document. This is simply because as I was teaching, I realized I need to add another event!
Not every standard is represented. I tried to keep it as simple as possible to help my students see the overall story. If there is an event you feel should be added to this product, please contact me in the Q&A and I will do my best to add it.
I am only human, and a teacher before a designer. I sell products that I use in my own classroom. I have had several teachers look at this for me, but if there is a typo, please just let me know and I will fix it promptly!
