This is a sample of the Wonders of Old timeline book using History Through
the Ages timeline figures. The figures have a beautiful illustration along
with a caption giving information about the person or event that it illustrates.
Figures may be colored by the student, or left black and white. A glue
stick works best for affixing the figures to the book.
This is an example of the timeline book using our Timeline Category Stickers.
The student must write in their entries and can then "categorize" their entries
with colorful stickers.
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 its contents.
This is a book you will see on a shelf at a convention and instantly want to
pick up. Terri has made a timeline journal that I predict will be one of the few
things that remain permanently after the years of schooling are over. This is
going to become like a school scrapbook of history in our home and it will grow
easily from year to year with my son. My four-year-old daughter is already
asking when she can have her own copy! The pages are large and smooth with the
timeline written across the middle of each page. Lots of room above and below
for adding stickers, pictures, notes, and 'personality'! Because it is hard
bound I guess we will want to use mainly flat objects inside it, but Terri has
produced a great timeline on CD-ROM for those of you who really scrapbook with
your timelines! The CD is also perfect for those families with many children who
each want their own book. You can print out as many copies as you like and bind
it however you choose. Lots of flexibility and room to adjust. Both the
hardbound and the CD are available from the Knowledge Quest web site.
I love the hardbound version of this book. It is superior to any binder timeline
I have ever seen and it is so sturdy it will survive even my rough and tumble
nine year old. My 18 year old daughter looked at it and musingly wished she
could have had one like it when she was still at home doing school.
Terri has included all kinds of thoughtful extras with this beautiful book. The
fonts change from one time division to the next and they really give the 'feel'
of the time you are working in. The book is divided into four sections;
Ancient(5000BC-400AD), Medieval(400-1600AD), New World(1600-1850AD), and the
Modern World(1850-the Present). Each section has from 10 to 20 double page
spreads to enter information, and Terri has included tons of possible entries,
listed at the back of each division, to spur on the creative process and give
lots of options. There was also a neat little coupon inviting me to send in and
receive a package of timeline stickers-Free! What a neat little perk within an
already gorgeous product. I can't wait to see my son's progression and growth as
he uses this book and begins to make connections from one event to another, or
discovers something that happened at the same time as an event previously
studied-that 'aha!' light that comes on is so evident with a book like this. I
know he will soon be making his own connections to the world and to history, as
he charts events and people that have impacted him.
The very feel of the book will encourage your students to do their best work and
make their entries look good. The only thing I can think of that might be a
problem is if you are using this book with small children and a mistake is made
that needs correcting. You will need to cover the problem with another figure or
a sticker or something because the pages are sewn in and can't be replaced as
with a timeline in a binder. I find this just motivates my son to do his best
possible work and he can then be so proud of what he has done. I know this is
going to be the first book that comes off the shelf when the grandparents come
to visit-it is the type of book that instills pride....take a look, I know you
will agree that this book is truly a keepsake, not just another resource. It is
my humble opinion that this treasure belongs on every homeschool family's
