There comes a time in a kid’s life when they want to see the big picture of history.  A few months ago, my son hit that stage and spent all day with a ruler, pencil, and some adding machine tape.

check it out!

Can you show a closer up of the timeline? Maybe give us the measurements you used and how you situated the dates. Thanks! Love your blog!

Oh my! This was years ago. I didn’t measure anything! Sorry. Boo!

Smart boy…

I have a fold-out timeline in my notebook, and it comes out every time we read history. My kids love to see where things fit. They are less concerned about exact dates, but they want to know what was happening relative to each particular event. I think that cause and effect understanding is so much more valuable than any number of specific dates.

We have a notebook version we use daily, but it’s the adding machine tape down the hall that he loves.

I LOVE this picture – thanks for sharing this – I have been imagining doing something like this – one of my son seems to be able to do this in his brain -We will be discussing a topic in religion or something and he will tell me – “Oh Mom – this happened the same year as the Mayflower landing etc.” We are doing MODG this year with my 3rd grade triplets and my youngest is in 1st. I really appreciate all your sharing – you can’t imagine how much you have helped me manage our curriculum this year with all your great ideas! Blessings to you!

He is ten. He is all about timelines this year. Every time we study someone, he says, “Is that before or after the Egyptians?” he’s very into ancient egypt

Every single time I get an email from you I look at it, so just because someone may not comment does not mean that they are not reading your material….I had to comment on the timeline because I finally got an answer on what I needed to do. So Thanks again…
