History is one of the hardest subjects for primary children to learn, this
is usually related to the fact that past and future concepts are very abstract
to them. Therefore, Timelines can be very useful in order to teach them
history in a meaningfully way.
Downwards, I am listing
several ideas and resources to face timelines in our classrooms.
The website I have used is List.ly and its utility can be similar to those for Pinterest regarding the teaching purposes, you can
organized web and resources according to topics. The main different is that
Pinterest is organized from the perspective of a picture so that it is got a
more visual effect upon the viewer (I will let yourselves decide whether this
is always an advantage or no)
In my opinion List.ly is
wonderfully recommendable to teachers that would like let their students work
online on a project by proposing several - previously checked - sites.
