Web Tool Wednesday: Create a Timeline with Flippity (@Flippitynet)

Create a Timeline with Flippity

Flippity is such an amazing tool for educators to use!  Flippity.net is now up to 19 different activities for teachers to use in their classrooms.  Each activity template is a Google Sheet.  Easy to change, update, and add your own content.  If you haven't been using it, start now!  We've been blogging about this resource for years, check out our past blog posts here.

There are two brand new activities that have been added to flippity.net including a Flippity Scavenger Hunt (which was duscussed in a recent blog post by Brittni Branton), and a Flippity Timeline.  This visual timeline is easy for students to edit and create.  Expanded and non-expanded view for condensing your timeline.  Embed a Google slideshow, add pictures and/or YouTube videos, and so much more.  Check out the instructions below:
