Here is a nice site for creating time lines. You are even able to insert pictures and video! This is a free service that will allow you to both create new timelines and view those made by other others. You can even have a class timeline that all of the students can add too. The example below shows a person’s life, but you could do timelines of the Civil War, Westward Expansion, or Presidents of the United States. It is really a fun tool! Enjoy!
