The creation of your very own American history timeline will cement dates, people, and events in everyone’s minds and give a bird’s eye view of history to the whole family. Timelines are a great way to add hands-on fun to your history class. In our house, we work on our timelines while we watch an historical movie set in the time period we are working on.
Over 1,000 timeline figures are included from the following historical epochs:
- Age of Exploration
- Colonial America
- American Revolution
- A New Nation
- Westward Expansion
- Division between North & South
- Golden Age
- War & Roar
- Turbulent Thirties & Fighting Forties
- Nifty Fifties to Swirly Seventies
- Recent Times
Best of all, each timeline comes in two sizes: 1″ and 1 1/2″. You can use the larger size if you decide to make your own timeline. The smaller size fits nicely in the timeline pages of the book.
We have also included living book and movie suggestions at the beginning of each section. This timeline is a great addition to any study of American History.
There are too many timeline figures to use them all! So what we have done is to make two sections in each epoch. For each section, there are the basic timeline figures in two sizes. In addition, there are bonus timeline figures in two sizes. Families can choose which figures to use on the timeline.
American History Timeline is a thorough look at the people and events of American History.
