History Printables

Somewhere along the homeschool path, we embarked on the Mystery of History journey.  What a blessing it has been. We all agree that it’s one of the highlights of our school day.  If you are looking for a history curriculum we recommend taking a look at The Mystery of History

The timeline is such a great part of this history curriculum.  Our timeline goes around three sides of our school room.  It is about 6 inches tall and about 35 feet long.  If you don’t have that much space don’t worry, you can scale the timeline down or makes rows. 

We used a strip of craft paper and taped it up next to the ceiling.  The years are marked evenly in 50 year increments, and the figures get taped to the strip according to their time in history.  I love the perspective we get from looking at the timeline.  We can see how very far it is from Creation to the Flood, or from Abraham to Jesus, and how very short the rest of history is.

I print our timeline figures on card stock to give them a sturdy feel.  Each review day I give the kids a figure to color.   Then we date the figures and put them on the time line (I like to use blue painter’s tape so I don’t damage the paint, and also so I can reposition them).  They love having a part in making the timeline, and I’m convinced they remember more about the events and people that they take the time to color.  It sort of makes me wish they each had their own timeline!

    Would you mind sharing how much distance you allow for each 50 year increment?

      My wall timeline uses 4 inches per 50 years. I’ll be uploading new notebook pages in about a week using 8 inches per 50 years.
