Activity 2.2 My timeline

Timing: You should spend around 15 minutes on this activity.

Having looked at the examples from Claire and Christine, try drawing your own timeline.

Use Activity sheet 2.2 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]   provided.


Go to Activity 2.2 in your Reflection Log. Once you have completed your activity, make sure you save the document again.

Remember, it’s up to you what you want to include and the time frame you want to focus on – your whole life, or a specific period. It doesn’t need to be to scale. Low points are on the bottom half of the page and high points on the top half, just as Claire and Christine have done.

If you are studying in a group, you might like to share your timeline with others.
