I love knowing what happened on a certain day on all different years in history. So, I have a lot of fun creating worksheets that tie today into yesterday. I also enjoy getting to see what was happening in different places all around the world about the same time.
There are many ways to creatively use this timeline database. If you want a history-themed way to brush up on math, click on Type of Activity-Math from the links below. If you want to focus your study on World War II, choose the timeline from the War Timelines below. PLEASE NOTE: I did my best not to overlap categories, so World War II facts are only in the World War II timeline, not in world history. South American History is found only in the South American History timeline, etc. This may change depending on the feedback I hear from you!
You are welcome to use the search box in the timeline grid below (click on the magnifying glass in the right corner of the table), but please remember to use general keywords to get the best result. You are also welcome to use any of the focused timelines I’ve created for you listed below.
A few special notes – this is by no means a comprehensive timeline of world history. That would take tens of thousands of entries, and while this timeline is growing, we’re not there yet! Please know I am continuing to add worksheets and activities. If there are dates or events you’d like me to consider creating printables for, please drop me a note at writebonnierose (at) gmail (dot) com or leave me a comment and let me know!
I hope you enjoy the WriteBonnieRose.com timeline!
