Our Creating a Timeline lesson plan introduces students to the purpose of using timelines and how to create them for different purposes. With our experiential application, students not only interpret timeline data but also generalize their understanding by creating a simple timeline using historic information. During this lesson, students are asked to create a timeline of their life, choosing the most significant events, and creating a poster with their timeline on it, complete with images and a title. Students are also asked to answer questions based on a given timeline, allowing them to demonstrate their ability to interpret the data on a timeline.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define timeline, interpret and create a simple timeline using historic information.
