Help me design a timeline book, please.


Recommended Posts

So far I'm thinking:

 

Wide pages instead of tall.

100 years per page.

Completely blank except for the timeline.

Procklicked, so I can add or replace as needed.

On a two page spread the left side would be the timeline and the right side would be the a world map to map the events from the left side.

 

Am I missing anything?

I've heard these referenced, but haven't taken the time to see what they are. 

 

Your's sounds interesting. 

 

We currently have a timeline on the wall, and it's starting to get crowded now that we are moving out of the ancients. I like the map idea too. 

 

My only thought is, once you get closer to the present in your history study, 100 years per page might start to feel too congested. I'd leave room for flexibility there.

Sounds fun! I ordered a book from Homeschool in the Woods eons ago. I liked the quality and especially liked the images and brief captions. We scrapped the books and went with a wall design. I agree that the last couple decades get pretty cramped up so you might choose each page to represent fifty years, and then ten years as you get closer to current time.
