HOW TO MAKE A TIMELINE INFOGRAPHIC FOR KIDS

I remember the old textbooks filled with boring historical or scientific facts. Now I realize it wasn't necessarily the facts that were boring, but the presentation of those facts. Infographics offer a much better approach, especially with timeline types of facts.


WHAT IS A TIMELINE INFOGRAPHIC?

  • It is the best type of design to show how something has changed over time.

  • It usually includes dates, days, or movement of events in chronological order.

  • It often has a linear, sequential type of graphic organizer such as the line in the infographic above.

  • It may include thematic shapes and colors such as the yellow hexagons above.

  • It has a variety of fonts to clearly display facts and information.

HOW TO DESIGN TIPS:

  • There are many tools to create infographics such as Visme, Snappa, Easel.ly, and Infogram, but I am most familiar with Canva.

  • Canva has hundreds of infographic templates that can be modified.

  • It has many specific infographic icons, shapes, images, and illustrations.

  • It has customizable charts and graphs.
