Timeline

For Dialectic level of history, I decided to have my kids do a timeline through the eras in a bound book from Knowledge Quest.  I considered using clip art for them to cut out and color but they were never coloring book kids before and they certainly aren't now.  They gave the idea a huge thumbs down. However they did like the idea of using colored gel  pens. They chose exactly how they wanted to use them.  They made a key of colors, one for each culture. Then each week they added to their timeline. After 4 years of studying eras from Creation to the present, they have finished their timeline book.

  1. We are starting TOG this year, and I would like to incorporate a timeline. This one may work. How is it bound? My children are rough on books.

  2. Jamie, it is bound like any regular book with a hard cover.

  3. [...] Dialectic, my kids enjoyed using a timeline book from Knowledge Quest. Four years ago I was able to purchase the beautifully bound book directly [...]
