Lesson Time

Group Activity: Timeline

Before class bring the following:

    • Printout of the “Timeline sheet” (1 per group of kids) (download: pdf / doc)
    • Cutouts of the entries from “Timeline sheet entries” (1 per group of kids) (download: pdf / doc)
    • Bring glue sticks for the students to use

Have students arrange the entries on the timeline in the correct places.  The “grey” items on the timeline are things the kids have probably heard in their history classes as school.  Can be used to give a time references for these events or as a way to appreciate the ancientness of the church.  For example, “At the time of the founding of the first church in England – there was already evidence of a Christian community and church in Kerala.

Here is what the completed timeline should look like:
