History Through the Ages Timeline Figure Set - Creation to Present on CD
Category Description for History Through the Ages Timeline Sets
These timeline packs were originally designed as a companion to Diana Waringís 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 17Ē x 1Ē 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 publisherís 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.
I can't believe how well this works! No headaches! This is a 2-CD set. The first CD allows you to print all of the History Through the Ages figures just as they are sold in paper form. The second CD lets you choose only the figures you want to use, and you can pick with or without text. I have been using the second CD. You just choose the figure you want from one of the many cross-referenced lists and then copy it to your word processing program. There you can manipulate it to any size you wish. It is extremely easy to go back and forth between the CD and word program, so you can quickly do whatever you need to do. I was expecting some frustrations, but have found none. As a bonus, there is helpful information about the many ways you can use timelines.
The illustrations are beautiful and very well done. I do think itís worth pointing out that there are no illustrations before 5000 bc. I guess since Iím new to homeschooling I did not key in on certain words that would have told me that this CD is creationist based. Our history curriculum is Christian but does include dates much earlier than 5000bc. I guess Iíll just have to supplement with other timeline art for those dates.
I just bought this CD. The images are beautifully done. I'm looking forward to using them in timelines and creating games and quizzes. My daughter can use them to jazz up reports. I think the CD was worth the money because by the time I bought all the books, and then ran down to Kinko's to copy and resize things, I might as well have just bought the disc and saved a trip to Kinko's.
