Core Knowledge 2nd Grade Social Studies Timeline Posters & Activity Pack

$8.00 $6.00

Add some pizzazz to your classroom this year! This creative resource came about as a special request for a teacher friend. She wanted a way to display a timeline all her social studies units for the year for her 2nd-grade classroom.


As we worked on this unit, other ideas for activities emerged until we ended up with this final resource with 38 photo posters and related timeline activities. I hope you enjoy using it as a learning tool in your classroom too!

The photo posters can be used in many different ways.
Some ideas:
Display them around the classroom in chronological order to refer back to throughout the year
Post them as a bulletin board display for each domain/unit
Display them as you work on each domain then add them to the timeline that circles around the classroom.
Use them to introduce each domain/unit

Timelines can be a confusing concept for younger students. There are several timeline activities included to help students grasp this concept. There are 6 different timeline activity pages, one for each domain, included in this pack. I have included two different versions of each timeline. One is a cut, sort, and glue activity that matches the dates on the photo posters—great as an activity for centers. The other one is a blank timeline so students can write in their own dates and information for important historical events.

There are 38 Photo Posters for the following domains included:
Early Asian Civilizations
Ancient Greek Civilization
American Government: The Constitution
The War of 1812
Westward Expansion
The Civil War
Immigration & Citizenship
Fighting for a Cause (Civil Rights)
