1 What is a timeline? By Zani Alam

2 Timeline: a time line is a diagram that shows when events took place. Decade: a period of ten years Century: one hundred years Millennium: one thousand years Chronological order: a sequence of events arrnged from oldest to newest. AD ‘Anno Domini’: Latin for ‘In the Year of Our Lord’ BC: Before Christ BCE: ‘before Common Era’ instead of BC CE: Common Era instead of AD Important words:

3 Timeline? Units of time Horizontal or vertical days, months, years, decades, centuries, etc.)etc.).

4 Time line History Project Wars Astronomy Biology Geology Use of timeline

5 Time line Displaying events A graphic design chronological sequence Helps to understand how each event might impact on another A fast 'snapshot' of time, people and events

6 What is a time line? A time line is a diagram that shows when events took place. Time lines are read from left to right.

7 Understand quickly how each event might impact on another Help memory Plot events in a graphic way

8 Why should I learn how to read a time line? To understand history, we need to know when things happened. We also need to know in which order they happened. We can read history books and other books for this information. But, sometimes it can be confusing to understand what happened first and next! Reading a time line can clear that confusion. A time line not only shows when events took place, but it also shows the amount of time that passes between events. In this way, a time line helps to give a sense of sequence, or order, to history.

9 A vertical or horizontal timeline? When creating a timeline first choose the type of line required The timeline is usually created by drawing a line from left to right, or bottom to top. Creating a horizontal timeline - Recommended for creating short span timelines Creating a vertical timeline - Vertical timelines which are drawn from bottom to top, allow substantial in fact unlimited entries to be made.

10 Plot History on a Line 1- Give your timeline a heading. 2- Include what the timeline will show: personal events, political events, events related to a geographic area, randomly chosen events, and so on. 3- List the events in a chronology, a sequence of earliest to latest. 4- What are the earliest and latest dates that you wish to include 5- Choose the period of time that your timeline will cover. 6- Decide what units of time you will use (days, months, years, decades, centuries, etc.). 7- Divide your timeline into segments or intervals. 8- Draw a line and divide it into the number of equal segments or intervals. 9- Label the dates and write the events.

11 Things you should follow when drawing a time line Text should be clear What is the end date of the timeline? Establish the total Time span you need to create What is the start date of the timeline? Determine the style of line required i.e. horizontal or vertical timeline Enter the most significant dates on the timeline and then provide facts and information of people or events The dates must be entered sequentially
