HSTRY  is a great website for creating interactive content for both the teacher AND the student!  With this website, activities are created in timeline fashion and allow you a variety of interactive features on each plot of the timeline.  The picture below illustrates those features:

These great features can really help students learn about multiple facets of a historical event or particular span of time.  Below is a snapshot of a History Timeline:

Not only can teachers create timelines, students can create their own and submit them to the teacher!  This is a great way to work on their formatting skills inside of the content you want them to learn!  When you CREATE A CLASS, students will be able to engage in the activities you create and also turn in timeline activities that they create.  

These interactive timelines can also be used for several subjects and classroom purposes.  Click on any image below to check out the following timelines:
