The 2nd Part to My " More than a Timeline Notebook"; Free History Scribe; FREE OfficeSuite Pro 5 Android App ; Free Work With Wildlife DVD

Posted on October 25, 2011 at 4:50 PM

I will try to send out the pieces to my More Than a Timeline Notebook in the order you will probably use them in your notebook.

 Here is the first set of timeline pages for the Ancient Timeline. Each set is (27) pages long and remember these can be used interchangeably depending on what your needs are for that time period.

Side Note Here: My Ancient Timeline uses 100 year increments. Keep in mind, the back page ya'll downloaded Monday has the years divided by the increments I am using so you can glance at those when you need to write in a date. Here is how I ended up dividing my timeline.

Ancient - 100 year increments

Medieval to Early Renaissance -  50 year increments

Renaissance and Early Modern - 25 increments

Modern - 10 year increments

This Ancient Timeline Page above has more boxes for drawing/gluing smaller pictures and lines for writing. Too you can write in the smaller boxes. There are some topics/events that are harder to find clipart for and just need a date and a few words for the event.

The space at the bottom you can glue maps or have larger illustrations or do a mini-biography for a reluctant writer. When a reluctant writer sees that space at the bottom it does not look as daunting as a whole page. Yes, we can make it fun.

This second option for the Ancient Timeline layout has more space at the top. This allows for larger pictures at top. Also it allows space for a "timeline within a timeline". I know some events or a person's  achievements may be listed within a span of a few short years. This allows enough room to draw a smaller strip under the bottom (parallel timelines) if you need them.

 (Parallel Timelines)

Too, because I love Home School in the Woods Timeline Figured pictured below, some of them are 3 inches up to 3 1/2 inches long. You need that much space on your page for those bigger pictures.

(Timeline Figure Copyright Home School in the Woods)

So I have allowed 3 inches from the top under the timeline to the three boxes that go across the center. Too, you can simply glue over the boxes if you have a picture that is larger than that. But having allowed room for larger clipart gives you flexibility depending on whether you want to use what is free, what you purchase or what you want your child to draw.

I hope that helps to "picture" how I plan to use mine, the flexibility I wanted, and I will be sharing pictures as we go through along in it.

If you missed the 1st part of this Timeline - it is the Front Cover, Back Cover and Spine Inserts.

 Here is that link.

(Printing Instructions: You want to print ALL your Timeline Pieces on Cardstock. My preference is to NOT print front/back so that I can add another page if there are more events. I DO prefer to place two pages in one laminated page so that there are no "blank" spots and if you need to add another page that is an "easy fix" because you can just add the laminated page in between the pages you want)

More pieces to follow soon...
