    I have a cool time line that the kids use. We put it together as a class, with children holding the pieces to the time line in order. Then I write different events from the time line on paper, put them in a basket, and they draw out an event. Then they get a big piece of white paper and draw that event on their paper(adding a sentence about the event). I then have them get up with their paper and put themselves in order. When we are satisfied that we have them in order, we number the back and put it together as a class book. After I read a couple of picture books on Columbus, I give them a piece of my "pretty paper". This is fancy computer paper that looks like Old World. They take on the role of someone on one of the ships and write to someone back home to tell them how their voyage is going. They really enjoy this!

    Hope is helps.
