Here is a fun time line focusing on the beginnings of the era of Fast Food Restaurants. Definitely something kids can relate to!
I have other timelines available. I find this is a skill my 4th grade students struggle with. So I give them a number of practices using timelines to answer questions about relevant and interesting information.
Take a look at my store. I have a number of other high interest timelines for sale. Here are a few:
The History of Toys
The History of Gaming Consoles
The Life of Dr. Seuss
The History of the Iditarod Race
The History of the Modern Olympics
The History of the Winter Olympics
The History of Snack Foods
The History of the Cell Phone
The History of Television (Vertical Time Line)
The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King JR
The Life of Abraham Lincoln
Timeline of Popular Disney Movies
Who are the Seattle Seahawks? – Timeline to the Super Bowl
