Create stunning multimedia timelines with Google Sheets

I love getting my students to create timelines. They give students a good understanding of a certain period of time or  the years of a person's life.

Timeline JS3 is an online tool students can use to create multimedia, embeddable timelines that are interactive. They look professional and do not require too much work. Below is a timeline that took me less than 10 minutes to create.

Google Add-on lets you create doc from Google Form

I am a huge fan of using Google Forms with my fifth graders. Adding the functionality of Flubaroo, I am able give and grade assessments that my students take online. But there has always been something missing. My students' parents don't see the answers their students submitted.

Forms Publisher solves that problem. It lets you create an individual Google Doc or Sheets file each time someone submits a form. It gives parents a way to see their students' answers. While it still does not show what answers where wrong or right. It satisfies parents when they see grades for a mysterious online assessment.

It's very intuitive and easy to use. Watch the video below to see how easy it is!
