Timelines

Ancient History at a Glance

6GRD

Most ancient history timelines online are TOO complicated for me.  I just want to know what’s happening in Egypt while Greece is doing such-and-such. So I built one.    I put it below my beloved clothes pin timeline of centuries (empty and ready for a new year of clothes pins!) so you can see the size […]

8GRD Timeline!

8GRD

In past years, we did our timeline work up front.  THAT WAS HARD!   Here’s the figures and timeline placement for 8GRD, but they’re BY WEEK this time.  Whew!  Each figure is scheduled on the first week you hear about them in either Story of the Church or Old World and America. 8grd timeline figures 8GRD timeline […]

Wall Timeline Printable

3GRD

Each child has a super-detailed book timeline, but on our wall we have what I like to call the “Ballpark timeline.” Every century has a saint, an American history event (or something that fueled the quest), a music period, and an artist. The music people are pictured in the right century, but they don’t have […]

Greek Timeline Assignments

7GRD

MOM WORK You could make your kid do this, but I don’t.  Getting those BC pages dated right is mind bending. 1.  Set up your book like I did in this post. 2.  As seen in that post, put the lines, beginning and end dates, and tick marks on the following spreads: p. 25 = […]

Date Rhymes

3GRD

Theoretically, rhymes are my “art.”  But, these are NOT NECESSARILY GOOD. Some of them intentionally so. HA! I want them to each stand alone.   If we memorized them as a whole poem, the child would have to recite the whole thing to get to the correct date. Varying the meter and whatnot, while irritating to […]

Pioneers and Patriots Cut & Paste!!! Timeline

4GRD

Doing the 4GRD-5GRD timeline is one of those suggestions that doesn’t happen in our house.  If it ain’t in the lesson plans, it ain’t a-gonna happen.  And when I do get around to it, it’s a MONUMENTAL task.  So, I have made a cut-and-paste version (or  a exactly what-to-write-where version) for you, using the 92-page […]

Composer Timeline Printable

All Printables

It just occurred to me that I forgot to post my timeline of composers links and add-ons so that others can do an adding machine tape timeline.  I got the original pictures from here TIME LINE OF COMPOSERS, but they didn’t have all of the ones from the Music Masters sets we use in MODG, so […]

Adding Machine Tape Cosmic Timeline

Wow, this was a big project!  I wonder how the Mormon Church would feel about us studying a 4.5 billion year old earth in their parking lot.  Hmmm…  Anyhoodle, It was almost a hundred feet long.  I have made a measurement list for you in case you want your own huge timeline.  The pic below […]
