Mrs. Rollins Class
November Family Project DUE Novemeber 18
For our November family project this year, you and your child will be creating a timeline of their life. This is such a neat project for the students to do and share with the
class. This also directly correlates with our timeline social studies unit!
First, discuss timelines with your family. Then, help them select 4-6 important
moments in their life. Use white paper, no larger than 6x6 inches to show each
event. Each event should have a picture, be labeled with the event, and include the
date. You can attach photos or draw pictures for each one and decorate any way
you’d like.The first picture on the timeline should be the day they were born. The last picture should be current. Some ideas for the other four are: first word, first tooth, first
steps, first haircut, first day of preschool, vacations, visits from relatives, first day
of 1st grade... anything like that. Finally, think of a way you can assemble the events all together. They should be side by side and in chronological order.
Projects will be displayed on a wall, so they must be able to be hung easily on a bulletin board. You could glue them side by side on a poster board; punch two holes on the sides of each one and tie together with yarn or ribbon side by side; or any other creative way you can come up with. All timelines should have a title including the author displayed somewhere as well. For example,“Kevin’s First 7 Years” or “Eileen’s Timeline of Favorite Memories.”
Be sure your child practices what they will say about each event when they will present them to the class. Family projects this year were intended to not only be a
fun way to spend quality time together as a family, but to be creative, feel proud of
the final project, create a darling 1st grade keepsake, AND learn to sit in front
of the class and share their projects as a presenter!
If you need any materials at all, please let me know! You will get these projects back before Christmas break! Please see the back for examples!
