Product Description
This pack contains three interactive notebook activities, one each for linear, comparative, and multi-tier timelines. There is also a page of background information, pages for an on-going timeline project idea and an assessment.

Linear and comparative timelines are usually taught in 4th grade, while multi-tiered timelines are taught in 5th grade. You can use all of the different types of timelines, or you can pick and choose the ones that work for your students and curriculum. We include an example of each type of timeline in our interactive notebooks for social studies. As an alternative, students could also create an informational display of the different types of timelines.

Using and creating timelines are skills that students need to practice frequently throughout the year. You can use timelines in other content areas as well. We use them during many of our novel studies to record the chronological events of the story.

We use spiral notebooks for our Interactive Notebooks for Social Studies. I shrink the pages down slightly (93%) when I copy them so they fit easily on the page. There is usually a page or two of informational notes to be glued directly into the notebook as a guide for students to remember the skill as well as more interactive pages so students can practice the skill. We refer back to the information in our interactive notebooks as we are studying different topics in social studies.
