I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

      Over the past few weeks we have been working through one of  Home School in the Woods Individual Timeline Sets (Grades K-12).  Ours is the Timeline Set: America's History (Explorers to 21st Century) This printable set is an amazing way to study characters and subjects from American History. From Leif Erikson to the attacks on our World Trade Center, you will get have the opportunity to study each timeline figure.

     Our daughter is a bit older so we decided to do a notebook study of each timeline figure. Each day we worked on the notebook we would take one or two figures to study.  She would either get online to learn more about them or we would head to the library to find a book about the timeline figure. I want to use this as her American History curriculum so I want her to take it slow and really learn about these timeline figures. She is very creative so I am allowing her to make up her notebook timeline the way she wants to then we are doing notes and/or essays on the side in her history notebook. 

     This set includes 4 different ways to use it. They have: 
• Wall size with text description 
• Wall size with just name and date
• Notebook size with text description
• Notebook size with just name and date

     We chose the notebook size with text description for her personal timeline. She has made her own timeline on cardstock and is using washi tape for the actual line. She also made her own cover page, but you can use the one that comes with the set.  For younger students, I would recommend using the Wall Size.  They will love cutting out the individual timeline figures and pasting them on their own timeline or sheet of paper to be hung on the wall.  You can hang them in time order and they will love seeing their work displayed on a daily basis.  You will be able to review easier with them if they are right there as well.  

     We have been using resources from Home School in the Woods for years now. They have been such a wonderful part of our homeschooling life. From these amazing timelines to Project Passport World History Studies, they will keep your students focused on learning with wonderful hands-on history activities. They have studies for Kindergarten all the way to high school.  You will never be disappointed if your child loves to work with their hands and enjoys creative ways to study history.
