Timeless Timeline Worksheet: History and Invention Timelines

From the start of human civilization, we remember some of the most famous people and inventions. Using this timeline worksheet, students arrange the timeline according to their birth date and the invention year.

From youngest to oldest, the teacher will go through the correct order in the history timelines for kids. For example, paper was invented more than 1300 years earlier than the printing press.

The teacher then helps everyone by giving the correct answers. Further to this, ask questions about inventors:

  • Who else belongs on the list?
  • What other inventions are important enough that they should be added?
  • Or what are future inventions you want to see on this list in the future?
