Category Description for Famous Figures of _______ Times:

I'm not an arts and crafts sort of gal. There's not much that will get my fingers itching for a pair of scissors. But, you guessed it; these did. First of all, the art work is wonderful - accurately detailed and colorful. Secondly, the figures look like they would be fun and satisfying to make and use (they move). Thirdly, I could imagine my kids (as they used to be) engaged in hours of creative play with the figures - over and above any use we might make of them with historical studies. And yes, I suppose I should mention that they were probably created to be used with history unit studies (an MOH customer/mom first mentioned them to us). The book (designed to be disassembled and the figures cut out) is of heavyweight cardstock. There are two sets of each figure - one full-color, and one black-and-white line art to be colored in (definitely a colored pencil project). At the front of the book is a pictorial guide to each figure that includes a detailed biographical sketch and a companion reading list for each figure (read-aloud as well as independent reading). There are complete instructions for assembling - using small brads or eyelets - with a letter key printed on the back of each figure for easy assembly. A hole punch and fasteners are required for assembly. ~ Janice

I feel children absorb so much more when they can use their hands to manipulate something that directly relates to the subject being introduced. This is perfect for that!
Colleen B on Aug 19, 2019
We are doing ancient civilization history for our 2nd grader this year and I felt this would be a really fun supplement for that curriculum and add a bit of art projects as well.
Madeline M on Aug 9, 2019
To go along with story of the world chapter one. We are really enjoying the curriculum and this looks like a fun addition. Saw it on timber doodle.
Anne J on May 23, 2019
I cannot wait to utilize this with my son who prefers when history comes to life. creating lessons around these figures which he will combine is just a very nice way to learn and retain information for social studies.

This book will fit in perfect with our study of Ancient History. We will be in Cycle 1 of Classical Conversations this fall. I am certain my son will be fascinated with the famous figures he can put together in this book as he learns about their special place history.

I'm about to begin SOTW 1 with my 6 year old daughter and I had heard that these were a great addition to supplement the program. I have concerns that SOTW might be a bit dry for her so I'm hoping this will aid in spicing it up a bit.

Brittany G on Jun 4, 2021
Is this considered religious material? Thanks!
Rebekah on May 11, 2021
BEST ANSWER: No. This is paired with "Story of the World" curriculum and neither are religious. There are a couple of biblical figures but there are also Jewish figures as well as other religions. Both this book and the SOTW cover multiple religions from a historical perspective versus a religious one.

Daughter loves them
I wish it included what type of paper fastners to get, the ones I bought, the legs were so big i have to cut them.

At first I was upset that the people are not punch out, but after thinking of it, and upgrading my daughters scissors to a more grown up pair, I love it. she's getting cutting experience.

you will also need a hole puncher.

My child builds the characters then goes on to play with them. We pretend play together and use facts from Story of the World reinforcing what she has learned. They are great!

Awesome! Highly recommended
These have been a fun way to reinforce what we are learning in our curriculum. They're so cute on our timeline. There is also a really awesome suggested book list in the front of this activity book.

These paper dolls are the perfect addition to ancient history studies We're using The Story of the World volume 1 and these paper dolls are a perfect fit Each figure comes on heavy cardstock paper ready to be cut out There are two copies for each figure - one that is colored and a black and white copy for the child to color My daughter (age 6) loves cutting these out and putting them together to re-enact our history studies I'm anxiously awaiting more in this series!
