Last year we completed our 1st 4 year history cycle. Over the past 4 years we have used both Story of the World, My Father's World and Sunlight. I liked many things about both of them but wanted something more that started with a biblical view point. I have heard so many WONDERFUL things about Mystery of HIStory that I wanted to try it for a long time now. So this year as we starting over at creation, I thought that this would be the perfect time for the change. So let me share with you our timeline. We are now in the 7th/8th week of school. We average 3 history lessons a week.
Here is an over all picture of our timeline. We used a HUGE white form board that I got from Office Max for about $15.99. It fits nicely between two of our bookshelves.
Here are two up close pictures of the beginning (bottom) of the timeline. The girls water colored the days of creation. We use Amy Pack's time line figurine's with the summery. Also each of the girls keep their own timeline notebook. We use the one from Sunlight.
Here are the links to what we use:
Wanted to let you know also that we use the Audio CD (LOVE IT).
There is a yahoo group, they have so many great resources and here is a link to that: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MysteryofHistory1/
