Activities across the curriculum.
More than 400 customizable activity files in language arts, science, and social studies are included with the program. There are 50 ready-made research assignments that include free, educationally appropriate articles from Grolier Online. Teachers can also quickly assess student understanding of sequential information with engaging scramble challenges. Finally, students work on their critical thinking skills as they fill in missing information in the “Finish Me” timeline activities. Teachers can easily author their own activities, too!
Communication to build understanding.
Communication is not only a way to share knowledge, but also a way to deepen one’s own understanding. Timeliner XE has been built with this in mind. Students can transform their sequences into multimedia slideshows without leaving the program. Students can create their own or use pre-made templates. When presenting, you can move the Timeliner XE toolbar to the bottom of the screen to use with interactive whiteboards. Students can also share their understanding with parents by saving their projects in PDF format.
