My Personal Timeline

The children have been completing their personal timelines over the past few weeks.  I use a roll of coloring paper from Ikea and a large clipboard.  The children use the ruler to measure 12 inches, which represents one year.  They sequence their pictures and glue them on their timeline, one picture for each year.  Here are some of them hard at work:

Each child working on a timeline typically had quite a crowd gathered around, asking questions about their life experiences.  The proud child completing the timeline beamed as he described the events in his life.  Of course, we prefaced this activity with discussions on the calendar, measurement, and timelines.
