Study Some of the Most Talented Musicians in History using a Timeline of Composers.

This resource includes timeline pieces and lines to teach about twenty-six famous composers from various eras, countries and musical periods. For your convenience, a blank timeline piece is also included to allow an extra composer to be added to the project.

How to Use

First, cut the pieces apart. Next, construct and assemble the lines according to the instructions on the sheet. Finally, using the dates on the pieces as a guide, place the pieces on the timeline in chronological order. (There should be three pieces on each line.) Many children enjoy moving the pieces to make way for others, so don't worry about putting each on perfectly. Consider using mac-tack on the back of pieces to move them very easily.
