I’m looking for ideas for a timeline. I want a big one–it will take up most of a wall (25 feet or so). I think that it’s difficult for adults to comprehend the passage of time; it’s even more difficult for a third grade student.

I’ve posted a fantastic resource on the Social Studies resources page: animatedatlas.com My timeline will be similar to the one that they’ve got posted. I haven’t decided on the different categories, but I’m leaning toward Government (with a subcategory for presidents), Technology, Culture, and Education. We’ll see.
