How To Make Your Own Blank Timeline Book


Create a Blank Timeline Book for each of your students easily with cardstock, labels, and a 3-ring binder. Better still, if you don’t need to cover the entire span of history, you can create only enough pages for one of four historical eras: the Ancient World, Middle Ages, Age of Discovery, or Present Era.

Blank Timeline Books can be described as an historical scrapbook for your history studies. Each page has a date range printed on it, running chronologically through the book. Your student pastes figures for historical people, places, or events on the appropriate page that corresponds with what you are studying. Timeline Books give the student a great hands-on perspective of when things happened and how different events happening at the same time may relate to one anothBlank Timeline Booker. They also are a good way to review what you have learned.

For the teacher who needs a blank timeline book for several students and is looking for a cost-effective way to provide that, now you can create an impressive Blank Timeline book out of cardstock and labels for much less than the cost of ready-made editions. Store the pages you create in a binder all its own or in a separate section of the student’s current history binder.

The blank Timeline Book can be put together a few different ways. You can make a complete book for each student that covers all eras, OR you can print just enough for the era you are currently studying. Print the attractive artwork for the front cover and all OR your choice of the 4 major time divisions:

image the Ancient World

image the Middle Ages

image the Age of Discovery

image the Present Era

Cardstock gives your Blank Timeline Book sturdy pages to withstand heavy use and glue as you add Timeline figures to your book throughout the school year.  This ebook gives templates for printing Dates on Labels, since running cardstock through your printer can be extremely hard on home printers
