How to use timelines:
- Create one for the whole Bible as it is studied in an overall "big picture" course throughout a year. Don't get too bogged down in every detail.
- Create one as a special course where students discover where each book and major event fits in time.
- Have students create a timeline of events for the book they're currently studying.
- Let younger students create a simple timeline of the stories in the order in which they learn them.
There are a lot of resources out there for things like this but some have too little and some too much information. Check these out!
Bible Timeline of the whole Bible including Biblical references.
Blue Letter Bible is a great way to see how/where the people of the Bible fit in time.
Bible Timelines has a LOT of information... almost too much for kids.
This timeline diagram is fantastic but I couldn't find a source.
Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps, and Timelines would be a great reference book.
Giant 10-Ft Bible Timeline would be great to help the kids.
Reproducible Maps, Charts, Timelines, and Illustrations would also be helpful with kids.
