Standards of Learning • I am learning to tell how people, places, and things change over time. • I am learning to compare my life to life in other places and other times.
What is a timeline? A timeline is an actual picture of events that happened in history. A timeline is organized according to the date when an event happened. A timeline usually begins with the earliest date. A timeline can be vertical or horizontal.
Exploring a Timeline In today’s lesson, we are going to look at a timeline that shows how transportation has changed from long ago to what we know today. What do you notice about these pictures? Pay attention to each picture and what is special about that form of transportation.
1903:machine on the launching track at Big Kill Devil Hill – Wright Brothers
1929: largest passenger plane to date takes off from Pennsylvania
Activity Now we are going to see what this timeline would look like if it were spread out on our white board! On the board, you will see a string that represents the timeline. We are going to place the pictures on the timeline in the proper order.
