“Oh, I get it!” “Wow! I didn’t realize these guys lived at the same time!”
Timelines have always brought clarity to my children’s understanding of history. Our family loves seeing the “big picture” of people and events. They also love to see how lives overlap. One thing that is fun to do with this timeline to see how long early man lived is to put one timeline figure at the birth and one at the death, drawing a line between. You can use a different color for each life so that you can see how very long their lives were and how they overlapped with others. Since Ancient History often covers such a long span of time, this timeline is a necessity each time we dig into the past.
We think timelines are awesome! They make history come alive by giving children and teens a “bird’s eye view” of historical events and people.
A great addition to any study of Ancient Time, Ancient History Timeline begins with Creation (circa 4100 B.C.) and extends to A.D. 1000. This is an exciting way to create a beautiful teaching tool with your children. Learn history the fun way–with a timeline!
