Time Line of My Life

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 6th grade / 5 - 11 years

Introduce students to the concept of time lines, and explain that time lines show important events in chronological order. Then, invite students to help you make a list of a handful of milestone events that may have already occurred in their own lives (e.g., the day they were born, the day they learned to walk, the day they learned how to ride a bike, the first day of preschool or kindergarten, the day they lost their first tooth, and so on). Next, provide students with long strips of construction paper and encourage them to make time lines of their own lives, listing 6-10 important events from their birth up to the present date, in chronological order. (Note: For younger children, you may want to assign this as a take-home project that they can complete with the help of family members.)
