History Through the Ages Timeline Set - Resurrection to Revolution
Category Description for History Through the Ages Timeline Sets
These timeline packs were originally designed as a companion to Diana Waring’s history programs, though they can easily be used separately or with any other history curriculum. Creation to Christ, Resurrection to Revolution and Napoleon to Now timelines come with 250-280 historical figures, while the American History timeline includes 420. The wall-sized figures are printed on heavy coverstock paper for durability, with 9-12 figures per sheet. Underneath each black-and-white illustrated figure are names, dates, and information about each important individual. The timeline pages can be cut into 17” x 1” strips to make a long timeline, and feature different colors for different eras. As an added benefit, each of these timelines can be placed together to create one huge timeline covering all of history, or can be used individually. Figures are reproducible for family use, and can be copied at a reduced size for notebook timeline use.
For a resource that includes all the timeline figures in one place, check out the Timeline Figures on CD. The CD combines all of the figures found in the individual History Through the Ages timeline sets to provide you with over 1,200 figures representing people and events from creation to the present. The black and white figures are included in two sizes (wall and notebook-sized) and can be printed with solely the name and date or with accompanying text providing information about that event or individual. Please note there are no timeline pages or strips included - these are figures only, so you can use them with any timeline you wish. Adobe Reader required; Win/Mac compatible.
All the timeline figures below can also be used in the publisher’s Record of Time notebook. The Timeline Figures on CD are easiest to use, as the figures are included at a smaller size for notebook use, but you can reduce the figures in the packets 65% to use in a notebook as well.
These aesthetically pleasing pictures are printed on sturdy white cardstock, and several pictures are printed per each page. They come to life nicely when colored with quality colored pencils. I have found this Timeline Set very handy to utilize with Mystery of History Volume 1 instead of having to create our own timeline figures. They are well worth the money for the time saved! I plan on purchasing this particular brand of timeline pictures in correspondence with the successive Mystery of History volumes. Plus, for those who are inclined to make the curriculum more advanced, there are actually many extra pictures included of significant historical figures that are not covered in the chapters of Mystery of History. As we began our second year of homeschooling, it was so handy to pull out the timeline and review the studies of last year before we continued our study of history. I was quite pleased that ALL of my kids could remember ALL of what we studied last year with these memorable pictures. This set is perfect for making very attractive and useful timeline!
