Free American Timeline Figures

Do you use a timeline? Timelines are as important to history as maps are to geography. Imagine studying geography without a map.

No matter how history is studied there will be some jumping around either chronologically or geographically. Using a timeline helps keep events in order. If the lessons are chronological, topics could start with Ancient China, move onto Mesopotamia, cover Egypt and then go back to China again. If the lessons are geographical a timeline facilitates understanding of what people were living and thriving at the same time, but in different regions. For example when the Celts lived in Northern Europe, the Romans lived in Italy, the Scythians lived in central Asia and the Chinese lived in Ancient China. They each have unique and varied histories and can easily be studied individually and brought together with a timeline.
Although we have not yet studied American history we plan to in the future. My free timeline figure posts have been some of the most popular. So I went ahead and created some to go along with American history studies. Free American Timeline Figures. Please feel free to print them out for personal or classroom use.
