Helping children to develop a greater awareness of time and chronology is a difficult part of teaching history. Using timelines can overcome some of the difficulties involved by helping children understand the correct order in which events happened.
Timelines are an excellent way of clearly showing important data and represent a key area in which history and mathematics merge closely together. Dates should not become an obsession, though. With younger children in particular, the emphasis should be more on sequence and getting events in the correct order.
