An Example of a Simple Timeline

A Simple Timeline may only include dates.  Put a date every 100 years on a strip of paper that is about 2" tall.  Make the Timeline run the entire length of the room.  A large size is easier to read and emphasizes the long period of time covered in the Bible.
Extend the Timeline to the present year.
Each time you study a Bible story, let the children add to the Timeline the name of the Book of the Bible, a picture reminding them of the story, the names of the people in the story, or anything else that will visually remind the children of what they have learned.
If you want to make a detail Timeline, you might consider the following.
If your church employs student interns, get them to make or help make the Timeline.
Making a Timeline would be a good Bible Study project for the Youth Group, or any age group.
Your class could make a portion of the Timeline each quarter.
Anyone who helps make the Timeline will gain a better understanding of the history in the Bible.
Possible Things to put on a Detail Timeline.
Pictures.
Books of the Bible.
People of the Bible.
Kings of the Foreign Nations.
Kings of kingdoms of Israel and Judah.
Major Events in the Bible.
Stories in the Bible.
