972026: History Through the Ages CD-Rom Set Creation to Present History Through the Ages CD-Rom Set Creation to Present
By Homeschool In The Woods

Timelines are a wonderful way to see all history at a glance! They help visualize the procession of time and how one event spurts on another. They also help you see history by the slice - what was happening at various places in the world at the same time. Timelines help the most visual of learner grasp the abstract idea of "time" in a hands-on way.

Your kinesthetic learner will benefit from the cutting and coloring of figures. They are wonderful for the auditory learner as each figure has a descriptive text to remember key points of each person or event. Best of all, they inspire a love of learning about the people and events that made a mark in the world, reinforcing that knowledge by taking part in putting the "puzzle" of history together.

CD 1 includes PDF pages of all the figures in the History Through the Ages Timelines sets:

  • Creation to Christ
