Step 2: Make a list of events that you wish to put on your timeline.
Step 3: Research and note the specific dates when the events that you wish to include occurred. It is a good idea to note your source (or sources), too, so that you can return later and verify the dates, if necessary.
Step 5: Decide what units of time you will use (days, months, years, decades, centuries etc.) to divide your timeline into segments. These decisions may be a matter of trial and error, based on the size of your paper.
Step 6: Calculate the number of segments that your timeline will have.
Step 7: Draw a line and divide it into the number of equal segments that you figure you will need.
