Free Blank Timelines

Timelines are an essential tool for helping children understand the order in which past events have happened.

Blank Timeline 1000 AD - 2000 AD
Blank Timeline 0 - 1000 AD
Blank Timeline 1000 BC - 0
Blank Timeline 2000 BC - 2000 AD

The first three files each print out on ten sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper (regular size American), and each page spans 100 years. The fourth timeline 2000 BC - 2000 AD prints out on four 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper with each page spanning 1000 years.

 
I created these timelines and have used them often. Each child has their own blank timeline which is stored in a three ring binder. Every few weeks the timelines are lined up on the floor. Then we read everything that's on them. When I read A Child's History of the World, we add something to the timeline for each chapter.  Although they are stored in a book, they could be taped to a door from floor to ceiling if a shorter time period was being studied.

The 2000 BC to 2000 AD timeline is currently being used in our China Unit Study. My free Ancient China Timeline Figures can be found at this link.

If you would like, you are welcome to print copies of these timelines for personal or classroom use. Please let me know what you think. Maybe I will create another one or two.

  1. Thanks for the down loads. I have been very lax about creating down loads for history. I will try to put these into use:)

    I have been looking & looking & looking for appropriate timelines for a Medieval History class at co-op. I knew another Homeschool mama would come through! Simple and not over done! Perfect!
