What is the purpose of a timeline, anyway?  Well, a timeline is an incredibly helpful educational tool and I'd like to tell you why...

Now you can have the timeline you always said you would get around to making and at a great price too.  Save yourself incredible time and energy constructing your own timeline from scratch!  Knowledge Quest has timelines in many different formats, most likely one is the perfect match for your educational needs.  Recommended by The Well-Trained Mind!

 

But if you would like to construct your own timeline, we give you instructions how in our recent article entitled, "How to Make a Timeline Easily".  Click here for instructions.

 


"I LOVE your timelines, Terri! As anyone with wrinkled, ripped or otherwise marred attempts at a timeline can attest, you want the hard work of your timeline to last. Knowledge Quest timelines are not only lovely, but they are sturdy and durable. Terri, a homeschool mother of four, knows the needs of [parents and teachers] from the inside. The quality of her products reflect that, enhancing your study of history while making it easier and more enjoyable. Thanks, Terri!" - Diane Wheeler, senior staff writer for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine


 

Dear Friend,

 

It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike.  A timeline can become the compilation of a student's learning.  Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history.

 

The truth is... many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years' War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year - 1453AD.  These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year.  A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time.  By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make.

 


"Hooray! Knowledge Quest's latest offering fills yet another gap in the resources currently available to parents and teachers who seek to help their students make connections between key events ... in history. Wonders of Old offers a paper-based alternative to wall or computer timeline versions that is well-planned, attractive and affordable! The student that does careful and consistent work in this volume will have an informative, enduring keepsake to which he can refer in years to come." - Marcia Somerville, author of Tapestry of Grace


 

History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand.  He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects...

  • kingdoms

  • empires

  • rulers

  • scientists

  • literature

  • great writers

  • musicians

  • and so much more!

Let me write just a little more about how fascinating timelines can be before I describe our timelines in detail for you.  As you know, history is a fascinating series of interconnected events.  It is amazing how seemingly unrelated happenings tie into one another.  Why, for example, was the newly founded United States able to purchase the Louisiana Purchase for only 2 cents an acre?  Napoleon would never have sold this valuable land so inexpensively unless he was desperate to fund his war campaign in western Europe.  Conquering Europe was more important to him than a large real estate holding in the New World!  And, of course, this purchase was the catalyst for Lewis and Clark's famous exploration.  We make these connections with the help of a timeline, whether it be a mental or physical one.  As these events become congested on our timeline, we can then begin to look for the relationships between them.

 

This is the type of thinking we want our middle grade students to develop and our older students to fine-tune.  As our children reach fifth or sixth grade (age 10-12), they begin to reason in a more logical manner.  They learn to argue more effectively and think more logically.  Yet this thinking needs to be carefully cultivated, not left to its own to sprout at will.  This is the ideal time to introduce a timeline.

 

The timeline project will become a valuable tool for your student to help him make logical connections in history.  Encourage him to mark significant dates/events/people from all subject areas onto his timeline when he encounters them in his studies.  The more he records, the more connections he will make.  And be careful not to draw the conclusions for him, but rather ask leading questions and allow him to have that "Ah ha!" moment of revelation that brings such satisfaction.

 

Read on to find out about the types of timelines available to you from Knowledge Quest.  This month we are offering some fantastic prices and bonus give-aways!  We offer timelines for your wall, in book form, and as computer software.  Consider the benefits of each format below.

 


"Hi - I love your Wonders of Old CD-ROM, I'm very impressed with its content & packing and quick shipping!" - Leah


 

 

First Timeline Option - The Wall Timeline

 

Ideally, a wall timeline is best, because your student can see the progression of history at-a-glance.  You do not get this same perspective with other formats.  Of course, you have to have enough space to hang one because they measure 10 feet in length and 12 inches in height.

"Another resource that is produced by Knowledge Quest is a collection of full size 10x1 foot timelines.  Help your students understand and "see" the progression of history with interactive and engaging timelines.  Because the timeline is a full foot in height, there is plenty of room for timeline figures, notes, biography cards, or any other resources you would like to put on the timeline." - MaryAnn of homeschoolmom.com


 

 

Second Timeline Option - The Book Timeline

 

Let's be honest now, not everyone has room for or wants to display a wall timeline.  Does this mean that a timeline is out of the question for you.  Absolutely not!  There are other ways to build a timeline.  The answer is a timeline book.  In fact, a timeline book has many advantages over the wall timelines.  It is portable.  It is more durable.  It can become a treasured keepsake from those precious school days...
