Personal timeline Project: What is a timeline?

A time line is an actual picture of events that happened in history. Timeline diagrams present events shown in chronological order along a line. These events may be historic, related to a specific invention or business development, or they may be important milestones in a project.

Timelines are designed to provide a broad overview of a sequence of events in time. They don’t go into detail, but links to events, information and images may be added as needed.

A timeline diagram consists of a horizontal bar or line representing time progressing from left to right. This bar is marked with events or steps to indicate when they should or did happen.

Create a personal time line of the special events in your life. Use the time line template below as a guide or the information you received in class.
