EASY – JUST PRINT, CUT, ASSEMBLE! This WOMEN IN SCIENCE TIMELINE PROJECT has everything you need for students to create a timeline or bulletin board. A variety of scientists from around the world are included with dates ranging from 1200 BCE through today.

Two versions are provided – Version One requires students to research 35 scientists (names and important dates given) and Version Two gives them pre-made biography cards with the information provided for them.

Here’s the Process for Students:

  • Tape or glue together the provided timeline templates (several 8.5″x11″ sheets)
  • Color code the 35 biography boxes according to the field of science
  • Attach biography boxes to the timeline
  • Enter the dates
  • Add pictures (provided) to each of the entries

What’s Included:

  • 35 Biography boxes for students to complete (for Version One)
  • 35 Pre-made scientist biography boxes (for Version Two)
  • 35 Scientist pictures
  • Printable timeline templates
  • Student instructions
  • Teacher instructions

Teacher Notes:

  • This project works well when assigned as a paired project.
  • As printed (several 8.5″x11″ pages), this timeline is almost 5 feet long, so it also makes a great Women’s History Month bulletin board.
  • NO COLOR PRINTING IS REQUIRED! The pictures look better in color, but print fine in black and white. The information boxes are colored by students with colored pencils.
  • The only supplies necessary are copier paper, glue, and colored pencils.
  • Please note: This resource is NOT editable.
