Making a Timeline

Making a timeline for the Story of Writing can be a great class or family project.

Use a rope or thick yarn as a timeline. If your kids need a start, you can mark a beginning, middle, and end.
As the students get more information, they add onto the timeline.
We used large note cards with the new information, punch a hole, add some thread or yarn and tie it to the rope. Kids can add
their projects to it as well. A clay tablet, scroll, an example of Braille, or pictures can be attached with a small clothes pin.
It’s a creative garland of information.

Roll up the timeline when you are finished, and work on it the next time during your study of the Story of Writing.
