Story of the World Volume 1 Resources

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!

These are amazing resources. Thank you so much for freely sharing your hard work. I especially love the clean look of the timeline cards. THANK YOU!!

Becky said...

Hey! Thanks so much for sharing these great ideas! I have enjoyed adding lapbooking to our studies as well. There are several lapbook ideas on the web that go along with the story of the world. I have posted some on my blog:

Becky said...

I forgot to mention that for whatever reason, I can't get the timeline cards to print with the words on them, only the pictures. Any ideas what I may be doing wrong? So not a techy head! :)

Shelley said...

I sent this off to be printed at Kinko's and they came out BEAUTIFUL! Almost too pretty to write in. : ) Looking forward to making the next SOTW book.

You've totally made my day! Thank you so much for sharing these amazing resources. We are just beginning homeschooling this next year and I'm trying to get organized with what we need to go with our SOTW curriculum. This was a HUGE help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jennifer said...

I just printed the timeline and cards out (on matte photo paper, and I will laminate later). I haven't found a timeline I like, and this is beautiful. We also have a very small living space, and we have people in our home frequently, so I love the corkboard idea, too! Thank you so much for your willingness to share. Can't wait for Volumes 3 and 4!

Natalie said...

Thank you so much for sharing these. I don't homeschool...yet...(I would have no problem pulling them out if I start to feel like they aren't getting what they need). My boys go to a Spanish immersion school that I am happy with, but I feel there are certain areas where they are not learning as much as I would like, history being the main one. I read The Well-Trained Mind last summer and wanted to enrich their education over the summer but got busy and didn't do as much as planned. This summer I decided to go for it and I wanted to do a timeline. Love your approach!

Leah said...

Thank you SO much for these resources! I've been trying to find a timeline that worked well with SOTW and wow...your materials are just beautiful!

Adrienne said...

These look great. Thanks!

Leslie said...

Your generosity is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing all your time, effort and beautiful work.

Quick question... do you have "daily lesson plans" for volume 1 like you created for volume 2? Seeing how you broke down each day for each chapter has been invaluable.

Leisha said...

Thank you so much for taking the time to put all these great resources together and sharing them!

Teri said...

Thank you so much.

Sarah said...

Ah! Just what I was looking for! Thank you SO much for sharing and helping out your fellow homeschooling mamas!

Sabrina said...

Thank you so much for sharing! I just got a timeline up and I'm so excited to get these cards ready to add to it as we learn history. They are just what I was hoping to find.

A Learning Journey said...

I was wondering what size the cork board is? By the way . . . thank you soooooo much for providing this resource for FREE. It will be most helpful this year! Have a blessed day!

Socha Clan said...

WOW! THANK YOU!!!! I Have been wanting to do a timeline with the kids and just haven't had the time. So tonight I had the wild idea of typing in The Story of the World in Google images and this is what I found! Perfect! Thank you and may God bless you though out your years of homeschooling.

Lisa Huntoon said...

Just used your downloads and made a SOTW timeline. I printed on cardstock and put on a blue poster board. Thanks for sharing with everyone!

Rachael Story said...

Thank you so much for sharing! I think I'll start this with my three this summer.

Louise Bates said...

I just found these, and they are exactly what I was looking for to help my first grader keep everything straight. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work with all of us!

Dawn Meadows said...

Thank you. I'm so excited to use the timeline cards.

Amy said...

Great site. Thank you for such great resources. I have shared your link: http://homeschoolingpatriots.blogspot.com/2015/05/story-of-world-ch-1.html

Liz said...

This is amazing! Thank you for sharing! Can you tell me what the size of the cork board is? Thanks!

Kari Meiers said...

Would you be able to give any advice on how to use the notebooking pages best? I love the idea, and have researched a bit about it, but not sure really how to have my kids begin taking "notes"...?
THank you so much g=for the timeline!!! I also would like to know the size of your corkboard. Thank you! :-) Kari

Unknown said...

just came across this awesome resource while looking for united states resources. great find! thanks for sharing.

Tonia Blake said...

What a beautiful job you did! Thank you so much. This re-inspires me for SOTW

Simplylove said...

Hi Mary, I am so excited about using your timeline cards but I can't seem to get the link to work. The link for the timeline Strips works, but not the cards. Do you have any suggestions?? Thank you! Renee (Perth, Australia)

Jodi's Gems said...

Are the notebook pages just for summarizing what they learned?

Unknown said...

What are the dimensions of the cork board you used?

Bobbi Tiongson said...

Thank you, thank you!!!! This is heaven sent!!! You are a blessing!

Jennylou said...

Thank you so much for this!! The visual aspect it will give to our SOW readings will be great.

For those set off by the 128 pages, I sent it off to an online printing company and it will be here in 4 days, all colored pages for under $25 with shipping included. That is still cheaper than me using up my $60 ink.

Mary Weller said...

Hi Mary -- I can't tell you what a blessing it is that you have shared these resources. I'm a first time home schooling mom, with four students spread across three grades, and every bit of help I get is invaluable. Please know, as with everyone else who's said so here, that your sharing these items is a blessing beyond belief. Thank you!

Karin Dewey said...

Hello Mary! My name is Karin. I'm just beyond excited and thrilled to find your SOTW figures. I was about to get online and try to make my own for each chapter and now I see you've done all the work already! BLESS YOU! I have two favors to ask...first, would you please give me a way to contact you so I can send a little thank you your way? Second, I'm having challenges downloading the files and would love to ask some assistance. Thanks so much!

Mandy said...

Hi Mary, I am having the same problem downloading them. it goes to an error page.
Please let me know if there is a better way? Thank You!

FarmAndAway said...

I'm in the same boat. When I go to download the files, it says "Error (403)
It seems you don't belong here! You should probably sign in. Check out our Help Center and forums for help, or head back to home."

Great site--can't wait to start timelining with my 3rd grader.

Scott Hunter said...

Like the above commenters, I am unable to download these resources, but I would love to use them! Is there a new way to get them?

Mary said...

So sorry I haven't been able to answer anyone for awhile. My life has been one constant tornado, but with the Lord's help the storm has died down. Everything should be fixed and all downloads working fine.

Dana Bates said...

This is wonderful! Thank you for sharing:):)

7Kites said...

Hello Mary.... Is there anyway to get the timeline figures back on this site? Looking at Vol. 1, 2, and 3! Thank you so much!

A Carpenter said...

Mary, I am having the same trouble. I keep getting sent to an error page in Dropbox. Can you help? The work that you have done looks amazing. I am looking forward to using them. Thanks!

Denise Whiteside said...

I am having the same issue. As a Canadian, I am always excited to get things for free as we pay huge shipping costs and exchange rate for anything we purchase from the U.S. So finding FREE anything to help with our home schooling journey is always very welcomed and appreciated!

Crunchylitemama said...

This looks so amazing. I'd love to download it if possible...I'm having the dropbox error message too..... Thank you!
