While timelines may be a source of controversy on Facebook, the timeline itself is an oft used activity in the classroom. From major periods in history to events in novels, students create timelines in multiple subject areas. When students create timelines by hand, they must figure out the time intervals and often have to fit several pieces of information into a small area. Usually this results in a lot of erasing and re-doing the timeline to get it just right.
With Time Toast, students can get their timelines right the first time and make them look even more impressive. This free tool allows students to create timelines based on any period of time. Whether you want them to create timelines of their lives or document major battles in The Civil War, they can do it with Time Toast. Once they are created, timelines may be printed, embedded onto blogs and websites or viewed directly on the website.
