As I was searching for Web 2.0 tools, I came across  This site gives you the opportunity to create timelines.  I found this interesting because my students are currently creating timelines about a historical figure.  This site has a place to write a description and upload a photo to go with the event.

One thing I don't like about this site is that you have to specify a month and day.  This would be frustrating for some of my students who were not able to find exact dates about their person.  I ran into this roadblock when creating an example timeline of Deborah Sampson.  I did not have enough information to put months and days, but had to include the event because it was relevant to her life.

My timeline can be found here:

I look forward to exploring this tool some more to see if there is anything else I can do with this tool.
