Tiki Toki would be ideal for a 5th grade introduction class assignment. The students will create timelines depicting their lives from birth to share with the rest of the class. This could be a very good icebreaker and allow students to get to know a little about each other at the beginning of the school year.
Digital timelines can be a great tool for teachers. Tiki-Toki has many features. You can add pictures to the timeline. And the events entered can be given very specific dates and times. The timelines can also be published online. Students could use online timelines to review for a test, or prepare for a class presentation.
