Learning Just Became BIG FUN!

Families, schools, and churches can unfold 15 feet of the most interesting history of the world. This easy to follow, color-coded, multi-stream timeline teaches six thousand years of world history to children ages seven through thirteen. These exciting facts and so much more wait inside:

  • who were the first emperors of China and Rome
  • what discovery unlocked the secrets of a forgotten language
  • how modern robotics had its roots in the tea dolls of Japan
  • where Christians faced death for the entertainment of thousands
  • why the languages of Greek and Hebrew were used to write the Bible
  • and how the Age of Discovery meant wealth some, and the destruction of civilization for others.

Understanding how the past has shaped our future will inspire young learners to make history for themselves!

“The colorful illustrations and photographs help bring history to life…”
     - April Estrom (ElCloud Homeschool)

“This was definitely one of the best timelines I have seen. Fantastic for homeschools, churches, and libraries. The entire timeline runs on a biblical perspective”
     - Melanie Ski (Year of Jubilee Reviews)

“this non-evolutionary chart will make history come alive while keeping God at the center where He belongs!”
     - Wanda Meyers (Down LeftyLaine)

“This is a homeschoolers dream.”
    - Edie Carter (Carter Chaos)

This version is casebound with a hard cover appropriate for viewing as a book that can be turned page by page. This version will also stretch out the entire 15 feet.

Need to consider revisions
Review by Jeff
In the earlier periods, we needed to make some corrections.
This timeline assumes the Masoretic chronology throughout. There is significant reason to believe that the Septuagint timeline from Genesis 5 and 11 are correct. It would be nice to have a resource like this using the Chronology dating back to approximately 5554 BC and placing the Exodus at 1446 BC. When you use that timeframe it lines up far more accurately with the rest of world history, and archaeology.
Fun Resource
Review by Emily
This is great for tying history concepts together. I think it's a must have for homeschool families.
Great resource across the age spans
Review by Dawn
We have had this book for many years, through many children, across their age spans. It is still worthy to get out to answer a question, compare concurrent events, and gain a visual understanding of how people and incidents coincided or unfolded.
Just what we needed!
Review by Dyneil
Great visual! This is a great timeline.
Fun Resource
Review by PAMomof3
My 4th grader picked this book out. He loves timelines.
Great Timeline
Review by Reese
This book is exactly what I have been looking for. It includes biblical history right along with other events that were occurring at the same time. In my opinion it is a must have for any homeschool book collection.
A Fun Timeline!
Review by Michele
This book IS big, but that is what makes it fun! We don't have wall space to hang it up, but we were able to unfold it and enjoy it on the floor as we went through our history this year. It will be used for many more years of history curriculum, as a great supplement.
Very Big Book
Review by Tiffany
This is a BIG book. It looks very interesting and has lots of information on it but it is very had to figure out where to start on it without a teacher's guide. If you buy this I would definitely recommend purchasing the teacher's guide as well.
Really well done
