Saturday, November 12, 2011 is a free web 2.0 tool that allows users to create a zooming, panning, interactive timeline of any event. With a free account, you can create up to 5 timelines, but the best bargain is a lifetime membership for just $75! Unlimited timelines, create groups, collaborate- might be very worth the investment. It would certainly beat setting up and maintaining 30 student accounts.
It was pretty easy to create a timeline. I made one on the cheer competitions that we have between my daughters' teams. I could see using this tool with elementary students for their biography, the colonization of America, Civil War, family tree, mapping a story's plot, and maybe even planning a project.

Great tool. I just had to help my son create a timeline for a class. I wish I had read this post before I helped him create it. I love this tool. I have used before, but I love the how these timelines are more photo/image oriented. Great find. I also like lifetime subscriptions! A very good bargain.

Hello Cathy:

Your a life saver - what a great tool! I will be using this in my project for "vacasions" the students will timeline what they would do on vacation. I really enjoyed this tool.
