  1. Hello all, My son studied Middle Ages history last year at WTMA and was regularly required to submit a timeline of events. I created the attached template for him to update and submit each week (saved as a PDF when uploading). Given all that I have gleaned from this forum over past 5+ years, I am happy to share this with anyone who may benefit.History Timelines Template.xlsx timeline example.pdf
  2. Has anybody used Preceden for your history timelines? TIA.
  3. Okay, I found this blog showing a year 1 timeline. I think I can do this. http://joyouslessons.blogspot.com/2012/10/first-grade-in-our-home-timelines.html I think I'm just going to use regular lined notebook paper and fold it in half. The students can use the borders to decorate or leave them blank. So I'll have about 50% more pages than the example at the link, if I have 2 columns instead of 3 on each page. I think that'll be okay. What should I use for headings, though, if I'm using this for AO? I think I saw some "official" CM headings somewhere. Not that I really care what CM did; I just want things to mesh so nothing bites me in the butt later when I'm least expecting it. If everything gels together nicely, that is all I want. Please help me keep this SIMPLE. No printing or measuring or art projects. I know some of you love your timelines, but I'm just NOT in the mood to play right now with timelines or to spend any money.
  4. I've been contacted numerous times about how I made my wall timeline. I put the directions on making it and placing the dates on my blog. Scroll down to the end of the Schoolroom Page and you'll find pictures and directions! I'm working on a FREE Resource/Schedule/Printable Page on my blog, too! Take a peek to what I have so far....I know I have a lot more to list but not enough hours in the day. I'll get there! I have accumulated so many free sources that I would just like in ONE place! If you have any to add, feel free to pass them on! Thank you! :thumbup1:
  5. Someone, somewhere, posted a timeline idea that I am kicking myself for not bookmarking. I have searched and searched and searched to no avail. She had her "main" timeline, with major historical events. Below that, she had another strand with famous artists & musicians, so you could see what else was going on in the world as that person was composing. Below that, she had another strand with something else - scientific discoveries or famous scientists or something along those lines. There were 5 total stands I think, each with a different point of focus. Does this ring a bell to anyone? Hopefully somebody else bookmarked it and can help me find that again! THANKS!
  6. I'm wondering how other people have put up their timelines, and, since I'm considering 13 feet of 12x12 cork board down the hall wall (and all the reviews say the self adhesive sucks), if you have done this, what did you use to put up the cork board. (My I'm full of questions today. And I haven't even had my coffee yet.)
  7. My boys and I are starting school tomorrow. YAY!!! We are studying Ancient Greece (TruthQuest) and Latin and Greek Roots. We will be watching "Drive Thru History: Greece." I have a couple questions: 1. Do any of you have any ideas for Greek food besides gyros? 2. Do any of you have any good timeline recommendations while we are studying history in general? How do you do your timeline? Thanks! Julie :bigear:
  8. I want to see and/or hear about your timelines. We need to assemble one for Adventures this year and I saw someone's pics on the Yahoo group where they'd done the background in felt and laminated the pieces and put them on with velcro. I'm wanting to do something like that, but I'm not sure about how to put the felt on the wall. So I'd love to see everyone's timelines! Tell me all about them! :)
  9. I would like to use our wall (about 12 feet wide) for a history timeline. We just started with Ancient History and have been adding figures to our Wonders of Old Timeline book. However, seeing a timeline on a wall from several feet away might help a 5-year old see history better than from a book. I bought clothespins and can probably find some rope somewhere in the house, but now what? We have a picture railing a foot below our ceiling if that helps with ideas. If anyone is willing to share photos, I would really love to see them. Thank you.
  10. Has anyone used the Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide? How about Trail Guide to World Geography? I am planning to try the latter this year with my 5th grader, and I see that the former is referenced a lot in the Trail Guide. I'm wondering if it is worth the extra money or not. I hope to hear from people who really tried using these--good and bad reviews. Thanks ever so much!
  11. I'm about to have my kids start setting up their timelines for this next year. What would be a good amount of time to section off at a time? I want them to date it (of course), title it, and add a brief comment/detail about the person or event. Sometimes maybe they will paste/draw a picture. Our focus this year will be on the middle ages; about 400-1500. thanks so much :grouphug:
  12. We're using Truth Quest American History (living books throughout the year) and are planning to make a history timeline, but I'm not sure which kind would be best for my boys (early elementary). I would love to hear how some of you have done this. We don't have near enough space on any wall in our cabin for that style. I could make a little room on one wall in the living room maybe 36", but that about it (our cabin is quite small). I was thinking of either making a Book of Centuries (BOC), and/or making a fan-fold timeline with card stock or something a little heavier. I love the idea of a BOC, but for little ones I'm not sure they would "get the picture" well enough by having it in pages. I wonder if having a more hands-on visual such as a fan-fold timeline that they pull out might be better for them (but maybe not???). On the Fan-Fold, I was thinking that maybe we could sort of break it up into manageable sections ---- Maybe one section for Explorers, then one for the Colonial period, etc. But we'd probably make it so that each section could be placed in a large binder to keep everything together. I was thinking that the binder could also hold any notebooking pages, lapbooks or other projects. Suggestions please. :bigear: Thank you! :)
  13. The last couple of years middle ds and I have tried to do timelines. Ds just hates them - the process of cutting and putting them on. He's the same kid that detests lapbooks and I finally gave up trying to make him do them. In August we start American History. I understand the importance of times lines and having them as a visual, but would it be "terrible" if I bought a completed timeline, hung it on the wall and just had him find things and have it to look at/read sometimes? Younger ds loves lapbooks so I am thinking he would enjoy making a time line and we are going to try it.
  14. We are using TOG Y2 Units 1 & 2 this year. We are going to be doing a simple wall timeline. I am wondering what the end date should be. I am going to start it around 500 AD, but not sure where to end it? Where does Unit 2 end? I don't have that unit yet so I am not sure. Thanks! Oh and if you have an opinion on what the increments should be, I would love to hear!
  15. We've hit SOTW 4 this year (working with ds11, ds9, dd7). For the first 3 volumes we would listen to the CD, answer questions in the AG as a group, do map work, and, every once and awhile, do a project. I have yet to venture into constructing timelines but feel compelled this year since the AG includes the timeline figures. I would probably do this only with my ds11, who is also now doing the outlining for each chapter (previously we did outlining only occasionally). My one thought is that the timeline figures are so large. Do you reduce the size? I'm also not sure how to actually create the timeline itself (how large, how to divide the time periods, how/where to store it). I'm also hesitant to begin a timeline at the end of the history cycle. This is one activity that I've been afraid to begin, thinking it might end up as one of those things that gets dropped. Any suggestions? Enthusiasm for this activity? Skip it (gasp!)? Thanks so much. Nancy in NH
  16. If you've already done a first grade time line I'm hoping you can help me. I have plenty of wall space so I wanted to do an actual time line, not the kind in a 3 ring. For first grade Ancinets, (we are using History Odyssey 1 which uses SOTW along UILE and CHOW) how much space (pages? file folders? whatever you used?) did you use for how many years? For instance is two feet of time line enough space for 1000 years in the first grade level? Or would it need to be longer? What has worked for you? Did you wish you made yours longer? Shorter? How many years did you cover in how many pages of line? How did you break it down year wise? I was going to make a line out of file folders, but a friend suggested to look at Beautiful Feet's time line, especially for their pictures (I haven't had a chance to look yet). Any other really good suggestions? Thanks.
