Review: Home School in the Woods

Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

Learning about important historical figures can be hard. The times in which they lived and their accomplishments. It can be confusing. That is why products like Individual Timeline Set (Grades K-12) Timeline Set: Resurrection to Revolution (0 -1799 AD) from Home School in the Woods is important to the learning process of students.

Timelines are a great way to organize historical dates, as they show the events in a linear way. Timelines can be beneficial for a variety of learning styles. Kinesthetic and visual learners benefit from the use of timelines, especially timelines that allow the user to manipulate the information.

Individual Timeline Set (Grades K-12) Timeline Set: Resurrection to Revolution (0 -1799 AD) is a digital product that contains 280 black and white timeline figures that can be printed and used on a timeline wall, or in a notebook.

The list of historical figures that students will work with is extensive. Historical figures such as Joan of Arc and Thomas Jefferson are illustrated for students to learn about.

Our family chose to work with the historical figures on a wall. We used a dry erase board to organize and display the historical figures.

I will say that this proved to be more challenging as we progressed through the historical figures. The digital download provides both wall cards, and notebook pages. In hindsight, I wish we had used the notebook pages, and kept a historical timeline notebook. This would have made it easier to organize and store. Both provide the exact same information, however, the notebook pages are smaller (or appear to be).

Each historical figure contains their name, the time in which they lived, and a description. There are files available in the download that only contain the name and dates. We chose to use the description so that my children wouldn’t have to write additional data. Mainly the reason for this is because we are on summer vacation. Had it been during the traditional school year, we would have written the information ourselves, probably in bullet format.

The cost to purchase Individual Timeline Set (Grades K-12) Timeline Set: Resurrection to Revolution (0 -1799 AD is $22.95.

Overall, this is an easily organized product that provide children with a visual representation of the historical figures that have helped shape our world. We will continue adding to our timeline wall.
