Story of the World Vol 1 Timeline Resources and Notebooking Pages

I've created a timeline and some notebooking pages that correspond with The Story of the World Vol. 1, Ancient Times.  I'd like to share them with you so that you may enhance your studies with your own children.  We will be starting Vol. 2 very soon and so I look forward to sharing those with you as well.  When you print the timeline cards out, print them with the settings "multiple pages per sheet".  Use the 9 pages per sheet option.  This will give you the ideal size for the timelines.  I would suggest printing out cardstock at the very least.  Laminate for a more durable, long lasting timeline.


  I have broken down the timeline strips into colors.  Red for ancient, blue for end of ancient and middle ages, orange for early modern and green for modern.  This will aid your child visually to be able to see the eras of history.  I also recommend that you add your own children to the timeline.  This also helps them place themselves in the big picture.


You will find at the top of each notebooking page a timeline. 

 Have your child find the date on the timeline on that page and either draw a dot, use a star sticker, or any other method you may want to use to have your child mark the date.  Please enjoy, learn much and visit for updates.


Disclaimer: You know, the old please don't sell anything that you download here.  I share all of my files free of charge.  Please link back to this blog if sharing.  Thanks!

Thank you so much for your hard work in making this, and your willingness to share them with others!

doucement said...

These are excellent! My oldest can use these for her History Odyssey Level 2, even. Awesome stuff! Thanks.

Mary said...

No problem! I will be making the timeline cards and notebooking pages for Vol 2. This coming week or next, so be sure to check back.

Mary said...

We are using HO as well. We'll be starting Level 2 in a couple of weeks.

Just to let you know how much I appreciate your blog, I've awarded you the Versatile Award:)
http://sevenlittleaustralians.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/versatile-blogger-award.html

Mary said...

I'm honored! I just love to share anything that I can. There are plenty of things out there for sale, but I know that everyone struggles in some way, so I like to help out how I can. :)

Anna said...

It looks like you have your timeline on a cork bulletin board.......may I ask what size it is? Thanks!

Mary said...

Sure, yes it's on a bulletin board that is 48x36 inches.

Anna said...

Thank you, it looks great!

Mary Ann Adams said...

Mary,
I printed out and laminated your cards, and glued the timeline strips onto a paper, thanks so much! One question I have, out of my own laziness and need to pre-plan, is this: I noticed that most or all of your events correspond to the chronology of events on page 317 of SOTW. Do you know which chapters the events go with? I'll figure it out when we do the reading, but I'd love to go ahead and put each card in the correct folder for each chapter in advance if I can. I'm a plan-ahead sort of person :) Thanks

Mary said...

Mary Ann,
You know, I don't really remember what chapters they all corresponded to. When I make the cards I kind of just look at the dates in the back of the book and toss them in the kids pouches the week they read those chapters. I guess I'm not any better at being organized for everything! LOL

Take Care!

The Mrs. said...

I just came across your blog. I downloaded these files and am looking forward to adding them to my plans for this coming year. I have really been struggling with what to do for history. SOTW seems to be my best choice, but I don't love it. Do you use something else in addition to SOTW? Thanks again!

Mary said...

The Mrs,

If you click on my our curriculum tab at the top of the page it will show you everything that we're using. God Bless.

Michele said...

I haven't used SOTW, but I'm seriously considering it for next year's curriculum. The cards and timeline strips look awesome. So how do you use the notebook pages?

Mary said...

Michele,

Thanks. As far as the notebooking pages, you or your child would write what they remember about the particular person or event you just studied about. In the blank box at the bottom your child would then draw a picture of something they remembered from the reading that particularly stood out to them. On the timeline at the top of the page your child would mark when in history it took place.

Our Side of the Mountain said...

What a GREAT resource! Thank you so much for providing these things for FREE! For us homeschoolers on a budget, it's a wonderful thing! We're staring SOTW Vol 1 in September and I love your timeline and notebooking pages!

Mary said...

Our Side of the Mountain,

You're welcome! I know all too much what it's like to be on a budget. I always try to buy my books used if possible and make my own things instead of purchase. I'm glad you'll be able to benefit from these resources!

God Bless! Mary

caalexander2 said...

These are great!!!!! Thank you so much and I look forward to volume 2, we start that next week. Thank you again and I love your site!

Mary said...

Caalexander2,

I'm so happy that you can use these and find them helpful! We're also starting SOTW 2 on Monday and I'll have the timeline cards and notebooking pages up by this weekend so please check back!

Enchanted Homeschooling Mom said...

Thank you so very much for taking the time not only to create these timeline resources for SOTW but to also share them with everyone. We are currently on Chapter 10 of SOTW Volume 1 and I will be your creations to work right away in our homeschool. Thank you again!

Mary said...

Enchanted Homeschooling Mom,

You are so very welcome! Aren't you just loving Story of the World?! I think it's hands down the best History curriculum out there for homeschoolers. We're starting Vol 2 this year and I'm in the process of making up timeline cards and notebooking pages right now, so check back this week.

God Bless,
Mary

Katie said...

I love these. I am planning on using SOTW with my daughter and these are perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.

Mary said...

Katie,

I'm so glad that you'll be able to use these resources in your homeschool! I'm sure you'll follow right into Vol 2 so check back this week for my new timeline cards and notebooking pages to go along with that volume.

God Bless,
Mary

Gabrielle said...

Thanks for your great timeline cards! I printed ours at 6 pages per sheet and they are the perfect size to add to our timeline notebook.

Mary said...

Gabrielle,

So glad that the timeline cards are working for you. I'm getting together the sources for Vol 2 right now, but Vol 2 is HUGE! So it's taking me longer than anticipated. Just keep checking back and I'll have them up soon.

God Bless,
Mary

Adina said...

Mary,

I cannot thank you enough for these timeline cards. This is our second time going through SOTW Ancient times and while I love the books, I really wanted to add timeline cards. They printed out beautifully tonight.

Thank you for all the work that went into creating the cards.

Warmest regards,
Adina Bailey

Mary said...

Adina,

You're welcome.

God Bless,
Mary

Beth said...

Hi Mary,

Just stumbled upon your blog while looking for resources to use with Story of the World Volume 2. These look so great and I see you are planning to post some for Volume 2 as well. I would love to use them. Do you think they will be available soon. I hope that does not sound pushy, as I know how much work this. I just thought I would ask, so I could see if I could use them for this year or should look for something else. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Blessings to you!
Beth

Mary said...

Beth,

So glad you are enjoying the resources. I should have Vol 2 finished within the week.

God Bless,
Mary

Alicia said...

This is awesome!! We are doing this volume next year and I can't wait to use your timeline cards! I'm having some trouble downloading though from your host site. Any tips?

Christin Slade said...

Stopping in from Pinterest to say thank you for sharing these tools! I went in search of timeline tools to build my own and you seem to be the only site that has a working link, so thanks so much! :)

Mel said...

Thank You Very Much!

Mary said...

Enjoy everyone!

I'll be adding some new resources soon so keep checking back.

Kristi said...

This is awesome, thank you SO much!!!!

Michele said...

This is exactly what I have been looking for and want to thank you!!!! What size bulletin board is that you used? I love that idea!

Ellen said...

Thank you so much for creating these! They are going to be a huge help for us this year.

Ellen said...

Oh, I printed these out at 9 a page, and I'm realizing there are 86 of them and only 42 chapters in the book. I'm guessing they average 2 a chapter? Do you put these on the wall? I'm trying to figure out where I'm going to put this. :) If I print out the color lines, will all of them fit on there since I printed to your specifications?

Extraordinary Ordinary Life said...

Wow, thank you so much for this!!!

Amy said...

Thank you for the notebook pages! We are starting over volume 1 again and these are so helpful.

mommiesboys said...

I printed out the timeline cards and they seem much bigger than the picture you provided and I don't think they will fit on the timeline. Any suggestions? BTW thanks SOOOO much this is amazing.

McCleary Family Fun said...

Thank you. I appreciate the work you have done, and that you would share with me.

Maryna Moolman said...

Mary, I love your timelines. I would like to ask permission to use your Timeline cards and translate to Afrikaans and make available on my blog as download, full credit would be given to you. Would you allow me to?

Mary, so glad to have found your site! What a treasure trove! This was linked up at a Story of the World Facebook group.
I would LOVE it if you would link up your SOTW posts on the blog roll I'm hosting on my website. It's found here: http://homemakingwithheart.com/sotw-blog-roll-2014/
I'd also like to put your link in a couple of my SOTW posts - would you be OK with that?
Many blessings, from Victoria (homemakingwithheart.com)

Andrea said...

Thank you for these! We're just about to start Vol. 1, and this will be perfect for it.

I am trying to download your timeline cards and notebook pages for SOTW 1 and it won't let me. it brings me to a virus warning page that i cannot get around. is there anyway of emailing me the download? probably not...I am a homeschool mom of 4 and I would not use it for anything other then printing and using in our home classroom. THank you...
