History Timeline - what has been your favourite way to document this?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to balance my creative and practical sides and would love to hear what has been your favourite way to do the timeline.

 

I like to ease of just buying the blank pages from rainbow resource however with postage that's $30 AU.

I found this printable which I like the idea of however it opened the door to all sorts of creative possibilities!

 

I would love to hear/see how your doing it in your homeschool if you would like to share with me.

I love my wall timelines from Knowledge Quest with Homeschool in the Woods figures ... they look just like what I had pictured in my mind of what homeschooling would look like ... I feel so accomplished whenever I look at them ...

 

But my kids are just meh about them and think they're kind of babyish. They prefer the plain free Book of Centuries download from Simply Charlotte Mason. [emoji849]

Not going to lie, I like Pandia Press' timelines.  They fit in a binder when folded and come with stickers.  Plus, they separate the timeline into 5 bands: people, events, technology..

Lol we are the reverse here! I loved the book of centuries however my DD never got into it. She is very visual so I think laying it out on the wall is going help make it click for her. I will take a look at Knowledge quest.

Yes! I just saw Pandi Press. I really liked the look of it - its colourful and well organised (and the stickers would be a hit as well) Thanks for sharing :)

 

Do you use their curriculum as well or just the timeline?

We used the curriculum one year and the timelines the rest of the years with another curriculum.  It just makes timelines easy.

 

We've also considered the History Portfolio as an all-in-one, entire book timeline (it has a lot of activities in it as well), but it has more of a religious bent than I want for elementary.

I really love Homeschool in the Woods timeline figure disc. I love that you can resize pictures, print as many as you need, they are gorgeously done and can be colored if desired. It is my favorite. I haven't bought my own copy yet, just played with a friends copy. I know I will though at some point when I want to *choke* throw down 75 bucks.

 

With that said though, this year with our brief jaunt into US history crash course before jumping back into our history cycle, I chose to get the Beautiful Feet Timeline Pack for the kids. They are actually really lovely and I like their fold out time line and pictures to cut out.

Oldschool here!

 

We just make one out of our 24" roll paper, as SWB describes in the WTM. Easy, inexpensive and nice hands-on project. We color code our entries for the categories.

 

Great men and women

Wars and battles

Scientific discoveries or advances

Documents and Treaties

Art and Great Books

Cities and Settlements

 

etc.

 

My kids sometimes make a drawing or add a photo to the time line. I take a photo of it at the end of each year, before we start a new one.
