Timeline worksheets provide students with a place to retell historical happenings and track sequences of important historical events, or even detail how current events came to be.
Timelines are often used in social studies as an effective visual aid that allows students to clearly see the order in which important historical events occurred. Using timelines helps students better understand the chronology of events of historical, social, scientific, and political significance. They can help students visualize cause and effect and how important eras overlap. While timelines are perfect for social studies they are also useful in English Language Arts for mapping events in a story. These timeline worksheets will help students and teachers create their own attractive and informative timelines quickly and efficiently!
