This sequence graphic organizer can be used in many ways: a timeline of events, to list plot events, to list the steps in a process, or even as a Cornell notes form with the main ideas in the small boxes and the details in the large boxes.
Timelines are often used for history assignments, but they can also be used for reviewing story plot events, a scientific process or for planning a personal study routine.
These blank timeline templates are editable PDF files. Each box can be typed in, eliminating the need to print.
Sequence the information into three parts. When the shapes overlap, explain what happened during the transition from one step to the next. This could also be used for writing a three-paragraph essay, with the overlap area being the transitions between paragraphs.
In the beehive pyramid, list the steps of a process, and then summarize them in the box below.
