Memorizing a series of events is often an ineffective way for kids to learn and almost ensures that information will be forgotten over time. TimeLiner 5.0 provides teachers with an effective tool for teaching across the curriculum, putting any chronological or numerical information on screen for students to see. Students can also use the program to diagram projects and make their own timelines. TimeLiner comes with 400 historical photographs and clip-art images and the ability to import images from the Web, add movies and sounds, and convert timelines to slide shows. Five worksheets are included in the three-ring-binder teacher’s manual, along with 25 timeline ideas, from using the program to chart a student’s daily activities to tracking the growth of seeds to plants as a science project. Both students and teachers will find the interface easy to use.
For teachers who move from grade to grade, this software package is mobile and useful for any grade level and almost any subject. You can also choose to use it in English or Spanish.
