Using and Teaching Timelines in the Classroom

Ron Peck H.S. Social Studies teacher from Medford, Oregon.

One of the great ways to get students to conceptualize events and people in history is to create timelines. There are a lot of great tools out now that can help your students create and have fun with these. I would like to share a couple and then ask what you use or what your favorites might be to engage students.

The first one I really like is Tiki Toki. http://www.tiki-toki.com/
This timeline generator is visually appealing and easy for students to use.

The other one I like a lot is Dipity. http://www.dipity.com/
Dipity is a great interactive timeline generator that is easy to use and free.

So, what have you tried? Please share with us.
