Clip to ScrapBook #2

A good introduction is to have them work on personal timelines. You know: 2007: I was born 2011: Started kindergarten. 2012: First grade. Kids could add siblings, pets, preschool, moves to new homes, etc. A goal of a half-dozen events is good.

Once they have the hang of it, the class can work on one timeline on a big wall. It's good for them to understand BASIC events in history. Once I was carpooling to soccer with a kid who had not done timelines and she thought that Lewis and Clark were WAY before Columbus because "the boats were simpler" (more primitive?) and the journey (river vs. ocean) was simpler too.

Duh.
