Have you been wanting to use a timeline in your history studies?
Timelines are a great way to record what you are learning in your history studies. They can help history to sink in, and to remember what you have learned and where important people and events tie into history. They are also a great keepsake and portfolio of what your children have studied. There are many different ways that you can keep a timeline. You can have a timeline in a notebook like a Book of Centuries, or you can even have a large one that fills an entire school room!
If you are wanting to incorporate a timeline in your history studies you will love this Ultimate List of Printables and Resources:
A Book of Centuries:
Charlotte Mason had her students create a Book of Centuries. It is basically a timeline that can be kept in a notebook, but each two page spread is devoted to one century. Each child can make their book their very own. They can paste photos, write down movies, songs, and plays that were popular during that century. It is a very nice way to personalize your timeline and it can be kept throughout all their school years. This would be a great addition to an end of they year portfolio of work.
