Start the lesson by explaining how timelines are a good way to visualize the major events in a given period of time, such as during a war or over the course of someone's life.
Model a timeline using each Post-it® Super Sticky notes to represent the stages of a child's life. Hand out a set of illustrated Post-it® Super Sticky Notes. Each should show an important milestone as well as the date of each event. Have your students place them on a whiteboard, wall or board in the correct chronological order.
Have your students present their timeline to the class.
