and so much more!
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.
Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time
periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates
are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference.
This hardcover book measures 9x12 and is printed on extra thick 70#
paper for durability.
New for 2008 - bonus CD-ROM included! The CD-ROM contains
the entire Wonders of Old book in digital format so that you can print
out multiple copies for additional children or extra pages to insert
into your book should you run out of room on a page (doesn't happen
too often!). The CD-ROM also includes timeline category stickers
that can be printed on full size sticker sheets to place within the
pages of the book.
WOW! I don't know how else
to type my reaction to this new product from Knowledge Quest. This
is a beautiful, beautiful, book. It is one of those rare books that
not only looks good, it feels good in your hands. An oversize,
hardbound volume, the cover is a work of art in itself. I really
believe the care and love that have gone into the production of this
book will inspire it's young owners to cherish and respect it and
