Timelines are a wonderful way to see all of history at a glance. They help visualize the procession of time and how one event spurs 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 learners grasp the abstract idea of "time." Creating your own timeline benefits the kinesthetic learner because of the cutting and coloring of timeline figures. Using figures with descriptive text are wonderful for auditory learners because the text helps remind them of key points for each person or event. Best of all, timelines 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!
It isn't necessary to use pre-made timeline figures—you can draw your own on a strip of computer paper if you like—but having them ready-made makes putting a timeline together easier, and as a result, you'll be more likely to do it. It also gives you a wider range of people and events to discuss and more information than you might quickly find on your own.
This 2-CD set allows the freedom to print timeline figures in a variety of ways and sizes, to suit whatever project you're working on! It contains 1,260+ figures, all of the material from the four timeline figures packages, plus 80 bonus figures!
