To start the week we talked about what a timeline is and how to make one. We created a class timeline together where we brainstormed events from our year so far. Then the kids illustrated it and we hung it up in the classroom:
The next day the kids got to make their own timelines! We started by writing down six events from their life. For number one they put their birthday and then chose five more events to write about. We talked about how the events needed to be in order of when they happened.
Next they illustrated each event on their own timeline. I taped their pages together to create their finished timeline. They turned out so cute!
