Timelines are graphic representations of the chronology of events in time. A timeline is a graph of events in the order they happened. Listing events in the order they happened is also called chronological order. They display information in visual form and allows someone to be more actively engaged in learning the sequence of events in history. Timelines are an easy way to see when things happened and which event happened first. If it is drawn horizontally, or across/side-to-side, you would read it from left to right just like you do a book. If it is drawn vertically, or up and down, you would read the events from top to bottom. Timelines can appear visually less complex than pure text and be used as a tool for reading comprehension and for organization in writing summaries.
"Think about the important events in your life over the years, and you can each make a timeline." Each student can begin with their date of birth and then make a list of the subsequent years of their lives, with at least one important event for each year.
