Elizabethan Era: Illustrated Timeline (Shakespeare in context)
Engage students visually with an illustrated timeline project. Students are given an event or individual related to the Elizabethan Era. Students work individually or in groups to research the event. The students write a short paragraph about the event and provide an illustration related to the event. Perfect for social studies classes or providing context when teaching Shakespeare.

As you go through the year, students will make connections as they see how events overlap. For example while the Scientific Revolution. Renaissance, and Age of Discovery are often taught separately, they overlap significantly. Students can see clearly how while schools of thought were changing on land, new discoveries were being made in science and around the world.

Illustrated timeline cards are versatile. Students can work on cards in class, as an extension, or at an activity center. The timeline cards are just one more way to provide easy differentiation within your classroom.

This detailed guide includes:
 Complete teacher’s guide for a 90 minute lesson
 Student handouts including directions and blank timeline cards + directions for engaging timeline game with their own cards as the pieces.
 35+ topics for inclusion in the timeline
 A complete list of materials
