Timeline Project

Dear Families,

Our second grade class is learning about timelines and biographies in Social Studies and Language Arts, and I would like the students to get the chance to create their very own timelines about the people they know best: themselves!  Please help your child to create a timeline about important events in his/her life.  Timelines are due on ______________________________ and will count as a Social Studies and Language Arts grade.  I have included a weekend before the due date so that your child will have the time to do his/her very best work.  The class is looking forward to learning more about your child through this project! 

Student timelines should include:

-      At least 5 important events in the child’s life

-      One photo or illustration of each event

-      One sentence about each event

-      A date or year in which the event happened

Timelines should also:

-      Be neat

-      Have correct spelling and punctuation.

-      Demonstrate your child’s best work.

Thank you for helping your child to complete his/her timeline!  If you have any questions regarding this project, feel free to call me at the school or contact me via e-mail.


****Please remember that you do NOT have to go out and spend money on this project.  I had a student last year make her time line out of paper plates.   A few examples are shown on the back with the rubric. 


                             Thank you!
