Any good timeline charts of Scripture I could share with lower-class junior high/high schoolers?

    I'm part of a ministry in which we go into lower income neighborhoods and play basketball with the kids in those areas. These are mostly junior high/high-school age kids living in broken homes and dealing with personal issues. After basketball, we go through passages of scripture, and we want to share with them a visual timeline of scripture that would be accessible to them. A Google search reveals lots of very complex timelines, and I’d like something more dumbed-down and accessible so these kids get the basic idea of the timeline of Scripture. Is there anything out there that I can share with them that you folks know of?
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    There are many timelines available at the BibleHub site: Bible Timeline or here: Genesis Bible Timeline

    I'm not sure if they'll work in this case, but you could certainly check them out and see :)

    God bless you!
