Timelines of World History
Four 10-foot wall timelines dating from 5000BC – the Present.
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.
Over 125 Timeline Category Symbols are included with your Timeline of World History purchase. Should you desire more, this set is identical but doubled. It includes nearly 300 symbols in total!
“Another resource that is produced by Knowledge Quest is a collection of full size 10×1 foot timelines. Help your students understand and “see” the progression of history with interactive and engaging timelines. Because the timeline is a full foot in height, there is plenty of room for timeline figures, notes, biography cards, or any other resources you would like to put on the timeline.” –– MaryAnn of homeschoolmom.com
