Wonders of Old spans from 5000BC – the Present and beyond
History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand. He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects…
* great writers
* and so much more!
It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike. A timeline can become the compilation of a student’s learning. Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history.
The truth is… many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years’ War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year – 1453AD. These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year. A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time. By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make.
Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference. This hardcover book measures 9×12 and is printed on extra thick 70# paper for durability.
Bonus CD-ROM included! The CD-ROM contains the entire Wonders of Old book in digital format so that you can print out multiple copies for additional children or extra pages to insert into your book should you run out of room on a page (doesn’t happen too often!). The CD-ROM also includes timeline category stickers that can be printed on full size sticker sheets to place within the pages of the book.
“WOW! I don’t know how else to type my reaction to this new product from Knowledge Quest. This is a beautiful, beautiful, book. It is one of those rare books that not only looks good, it feels good in your hands. An oversize, hardbound volume, the cover is a work of art in itself. I really believe the care and love that have gone into the production of this book will inspire it’s young owners to cherish and respect it and its contents.”
