Teach your students how to make a timeline with a Create a Timeline Project.
Making a Timeline Can be Fun!
Interpreting and constructing timelines enhances your student’s comprehension of the order of given events. It also helps them know whether specific events deserve any emphasis based on their importance within history and literature. Understanding timelines will even come in handy later when students start organizing their own days!
