Why Use a History Timeline?

Whether you use traditional textbooks, living books, or online curriculum, a history timeline can significantly increase your children’s understanding of history. A history timeline will help your children see the chronological flow of history, make connections between events and people, observe patterns in history, and discover cause and effect relationships in historical events.

Adding historical figures and events to a history timeline, as your children study them, is also a fun way to keep a record of what they’ve learned over the years. The timeline can also help your children remember key events and people in history.

Fortunately, there are many free online resources you can use to create a history timeline. Below are some of my favorites.
