Being able to see historical events in relation to other historical events gives valuable perspective. History Through the Ages from Homeschool in the Woods takes this one step further with a well-done black-and-white line illustration to go with each timeline entry.
Each timeline pack contains wall-sized figures (2-3.5 inches) printed on good-quality cardstock, a colored timeline, and permission to reproduce for homeschool use. We use them both on the wall, and in student created lapbooks, folders and other projects. The line drawings can be colored with colored pencils for added interest.
History is a fascinating topic that rarely gets the emphasis or attention it deserves. It’s so much more than names, dates and places. It tells the story of why we are who, what and where we are. It’s a story of relationships, discoveries, wars, travels — of life itself. Giving a picture to all those names dates and places helps to tell the fascinating story of history.
