What is a Timeline?
What is a timeline, and how can it help us understand history? A timeline is a graphic representation of the passage of time on a line. In this two-page history worksheet, children are introduced to the concept of a timeline through an example containing a familiar morning scene. Students then assemble a historical timeline using a template and simple cut-and-paste images. This hands-on activity lends itself well to a year one and first-grade social studies curriculum.
