Make a Blank Timeline Book

How to Make Your Own


Blank Timeline Books can be described as an historical scrapbook for your history studies. Each page has a date range printed on it, running chronologically through the book. Your student pastes figures for historical people, places, or events on the appropriate page that corresponds with what you are studying. Timeline Books give the student a great hands-on perspective of when things happened and how different events happening at the same time may relate to one anothBlank Timeline Booker. They also are a good way to review what you have learned.

For the teacher who needs a blank timeline book for several students and is looking for a cost-effective way to provide that, now you can create an impressive Blank Timeline book out of cardstock and labels for much less than the cost of ready-made editions. Store the pages you create in a binder all its own or in a separate section of the student's current history binder.
