Using and Teaching Timelines in the Classroom
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.
