Timetoast

Timetoast is a great way to share the past, or even the future…
Creating a timeline takes minutes, it’s as simple as can be.

Here is an example of a timetoast that tells my story: http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/machado

  1. I really liked the timeline on the Civil War found at http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/98483 This timeline gives a good overview of the important events that occurred during the war, the treaties that were made and important battles fought. It displays various pictures to illustrate the summaries given, and is a timeline I would display in class while learning about the Civil War.

  2. I also liked the timeline, http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/98488 which shows the timeline of how to build a book. Since my focus is on English, this becomes a useful tool when establishing a time frame for writing, editing, publishing a book. Although students may not publish a book, they will at least understand the time a book or creative writing piece must be completed. It is an interesting way to depict the structure of building a book and demonstrating the amount of time that goes into creating a published piece.

  3. I think Timetoast is a great resource for not only teachers to use to teach about concepts but also for students to create to show understanding. I really enjoyed looking at some of the native american history timelines and learning more about history. I then researched some for my concentration area, math, which was a little harder to find Timetoast. I found http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/math-education about math education. This timeline would be very beneficial for students, like me, who are in math education programs. It could also be used in the middle level classroom to introduce the history of math to your students. I also liked http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/83162 as a source of a teaching tool. This teacher used Timetoast to map out her instruction over a few days. As a teacher, I could make a timeline for each unit and show it to the students at the beginning of the unit so they know what to expect over the course of the unit. I could have the homework, quizzes, and test on the timeline so the students could always go back and reference the timeline.

  4. I found one timeline I believe would be very valuable during my instruction of the Water Cycle. The timeline I like can be located at http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/water-cycle–3 . I would use this timeline at the beginning of the science unit to show the basic cycle of water. It would be a great introduction, and I could easily expose students to new information. While searching, I had difficulty finding another timeline based on the Water Cycle that would be beneficial for my students. One way that I would use Timetoast in my classroom is to have students create a timeline to coincide with a project we conduct. I would like students to create their own water cycle. The students could then create a timeline based on each phase of the cycle.

  5. I really like this website! I found a timeline about Texas history (http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/unit-4-7th-grade-tx-history) and it made me think of learning and teaching PA history. Creating a timeline could be a choice for a culminating activity for a unit on PA history. I would put this on a list of final projects that my students could choose for the unit.

    I also found a timeline created based on the novel “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” by Judy Blume (http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/tales-of-the-fourth-grade-nothing). I would read this novel with my class as a whole and create the timeline together. This would act as a great introduction to timelines so that I could use them in other subjects (like PA history!)

  6. I found this timeline ( http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/95530) for Bud, Not Buddy. I chose this timeline because generally students in 6th grade read this novel or ones that are similar that are related to the period of time, the Great Depression. The timeline would be a good review of what events occurred in the novel, as well as introduce some of the reasons that the Great Depression occurred.

    In a previous class I was taking, I created a unit plan on Black History Month. I found this timeline on TImeToast about Rosa Parks, who played a significant role in the movements for civil rights. (http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/black-history-month-deafe6bf-17ce-4176-9463-b4b276aa8ab2) I think that timelines like these for all civil rights leaders and movers would be great to incorporate into a unit plan, because it can be a part of a “character showcase” or something similar in order to teach history throughout a whole unit plan, even if the class is unrelated to history.

    I also found this timeline for the scientific method. As students are entering the end of elementary school and the beginning of middle school they are likely to learn about the Scientific Method process. I really like this timeline because it can show step by step what the students will be doing in the order of the method. Very good for use in a science classroom!
