World time line power point and timeline activity KS2

(0)
I have made a world history time line on power point so with every click the next period of study appears in chronological order. I have also tried to demonstrate the over lap of periods, and the size of the labels are intended to show duration of the period. The time line shows BC/BCE and AD/CE. I have made a separate time line on the PowerPoint for 0AD onwards. The time line is editable if you want to remove or add particular periods of time. Also included a time line activity for the children’s books.
