There are so many different ways to make timelines and I’ve done them all.
A roll of paper marked in centuries stayed up at the top of our kitchen walls for a number of years and we added to it as we studied. Of course, the children’s birth pictures we on the time line to help them with perspective. We included the last 500 years for European and North American history which helped to see how events fit together.
Scrapbook photo books are a more long lasting way to create a timeline with pages slipped into plastic covers.
Tiki-toki is my favourite online digital timeline creator.

Thank you so much for your excellent resources. I’m now in my third year of homeschooling my two children (now 8 and 10). I am happy that I found your resources the first year that I began teaching.
I’ve had to source separate material for language arts (spelling, grammar and writing, and novel study), science, teaching French, music, math, art and social studies. It’s been worth it! One size does not fit all.
In the last three years, we’ve used your Canada, My Country book and accompanying materials, Africa, Land of Hope and related books, Canada’s Natives Long Ago, and this year we are studying Courage and Conquest for an excellent Canadian history program. I love that you have so many books that complement your curriculum.
I’m so happy with the curriculum and look forward to finding other gems from your shop!
