What is a timeline? It is a picture of the passage of time on a line. Timelines help us understand history. They also tell us what happened when and how much time went by between events. A timeline also helps you remember when important things happened.
To start a timeline, mark the starting date and what happened on that date. Then mark the end of the timeline with an ending date and what happened. Don't include everything - only the most important events. Now you have your timeline!
