These are really good looking timelines! If you don't believe me, check out this sample on World War I, or this one about the History of Immigration in theUnited States. And your students can create timelines that look just as good.
- Create a timeline of historical events.
- Create a biographical timeline.
- Embed multiple videos, each with its own quiz.
- Do what my students did, and use it as a linear collage for a nonfiction book.
- Create your own timeline (as a teacher) to provide students with needed historical context they need before a new unit.
- Again, student timelines are not publicly visibly (yet), and may never be, so plan accordingly.
- Check-off sheets like the one I created are key to help students manage the content they're adding.

- No, I did not really read the book about chickens, but I did spend summers running a farm at camp, so I know my way around a chicken coop.
