2nd Grade Timeline Project – Due Monday 9/16

2nd Grade Timeline Project

Second Grade will be doing a timeline project. Each student is asked to create a timeline of important events from their lives.

What You Do:

  1. When most people hear the term “time line,” they think about historical events. But every person has a history, too, and your child is no different. Start by talking to your kid about the key events in his/her life, for example, the day he/she was born, the month he/she started to talk or walk, when his siblings arrived, dates of favorite vacations, the month you moved to a new house, or when he/she first started school. Write them down, along with a few words about each, for example, “March 5, 2003. I was born!”, “Fall, 2006. Trip to Disneyland” or “May 2007. We moved.”
  2. Cut a long sheet of paper from a paper roll, or you can tape a few pieces of paper together to form a long sheet (final paper should be about 2 feet long). If you need a piece of paper, please see your teacher.
  3. Lay it out on a table horizontally and using a ruler, draw a line through the middle, dividing it horizontally.
  4. Above the line, write the key events of your child’s life, left to right, leaving a few inches of space between each.
  5. Below the line, put the date and let your child illustrate each event—either with family photos, or with drawings.
  6. The headline should be titled with their name. Example- “Bob’s Life Timeline”
