A popular tool for creating interactive timelines can be found at www.timetoast.com

Student presentations can be engaging when research has been organized into a timeline format with key events, dates, representative images, descriptive text and hyperlinks.

Take a closer look.

To sign up for a free account students must create a username (nickname) which will appear on published Timetoasts and provide an email address and password. Students should use their school email addresses and passwords.  Timetoast will send a confirmation message which must be opened in order to activate the new account.
