Each school year the lower elementary classrooms study how people record time, long ago and today. We do many activities to give the children a sense of when time passes and they discover that we all record time in some way. We keep diaries, check calendars, mark days off, etc
One of our activities is to make timelines of their family members. The children discover the older family members have longer timelines and the youngest members have very short ones.
Stop by Room 107 and see our Family Timelines.
