Beautiful Multimedia Timelines (made easy)

Timelines can look professional and polished while reinforcing a number of research and digital citizenship skills. The amazing folks at the Knight Lab at Northwestern University have created a template that, with a little help, anyone from upper elementary students to high schoolers, and beyond can make amazing embedded timelines.

Students make a copy of the template in their Google Drives and then enter dates, headlines, links to audio, video, or images they've found online along with their citations. Then following a few step-by-step instructions, they are able to get either a link or embed code to share their timeline with anyone they wish, from their teacher and class to a worldwide audience! Think of all of the ways timelines can be used in your classroom!
