British History Timeline

British History Timeline

Timeline for the children to cut out and order and then add dates. A teacher’s answer sheet attached. A nice activity at the beginning of a topic, designed for Y4 but I think many year groups could use it. Hopefully it is accurate, welcome any feedback. K

Victorian event timeline

Victorian event timeline

These set of cards can be used in many different ways. The timeline is divided up into the different decades of the victorian era, and shows the different events which happened over the years. You can cut the A4 sheets into A5 size or leave as they are. I haven't included all events, just those that mt class will be studing. You can add things to and take things out of the time line. I am also making a victorian law timeline as to include these of this one would have been to much.
