American History Timeline Figures - Heart of Dakota BHFHG

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

I'm trying to catch up with some of the requests I had from my HOD organization post. Some of you had asked about the American history timeline figures I made. I had run out of laminating sheets. They arrived today, so I was able to laminate and cut out all of my timeline cards. Each of these cards corresponds to the HOD timeline activities on day 5 of each unit. I printed them on cardstock, and laminated them.

I found similar cards last year for the Ancients, but couldn't find anything for American History. Even if you don't use HOD these cards will cover many of the early American history figures you would study. You can find the file for these cards here in Google Docs. The files are also located here or here if you have trouble with the first location.

 So far our timeline figures haven't reached into what is considered "early modern" history. I never realized that Columbus was making his discoveries in the middle ages. I love the having the chance to re-learn history. It's so fun!

  We have the History Odyssey timeline (that I also laminated.) I adhere the cards to the timeline with velcro dots. You could use these cards on a homemade timeline just as easily of course. By the way, if you have a Mardel in your town, it has been the cheapest place I have found for lamination. It's only 25 cents a foot. I laminated all of my timelines for 3-4 bucks (along with a few other things.)

A few others asked for the files for the HOD timeline sheets I made as well. These enlarged sheets are better for you who have smaller children that have a more difficult writing small. I uploaded them to Google Docs for you here.

I still have more questions to answer that you folks asked, and as I have a minute here and there I will answer them. For now I hope these make fun additions to your homeschool day.

  4. I just tried to print the timeline cards and it said "this file is damaged and could not be repaired."

    Is there a chance you can look into it and fix it? :)

    Thank you.

  5. Kim,

    What browser are you using? Sometimes updating your browser, or using a different one helps. I use Firefox. I have no problem opening the file in google docs. Hmm....

  6. I don't know. I had no problem with the timeline pages. I use Firefox as well. I tried again, thinking that since the computer had been off and then rebooted it might help. I also reloaded the page. I can't figure it out since the other was no problem to print. Maybe I'll try one of your other files.

  7. I uploaded each page individually. Try these links:

  8. I ended up saving the image in my files and printing from there. For some reason, I was able to print the timeline pages directly from your google page. At any rate, I really appreciate having these.

    Thanks again.

  10. Thank you. Yes, those will work. I'm all set now, but maybe it will help someone else.

  11. Let me know if those work better :) I'm so sorry you've had trouble printing them. I know that is really frustrating. Computer stuff drives me bonkers!

  13. Thank you! I love your organization system and I am hoping to emulate it. I already took my books to Kinko's for cutting and drilling...and I just found your system today. Too bad I don't have a Staples near me. I looked at other stores today and there just does not seem to be anything comparable to your binders and binder dividers. Staples says I can order the binders online, but the dividers are available in store only and that's the part I really want. Anyway, thank you for sharing!

  14. Laura,

    You are so welcome! I'm sorry you couldn't find binders. I do love the dividers. They're 9 bucks in the store, and I got them for under 2 this year on clearance! Staples' shipping is too high. I hope you can find something you really like. Target had some pretty cute binders :)

  16. I just came across your blog on Pinterest! LOVE your organization techniques! I was interested in your Timline Printables. We are using Beautiful Feet Books Early American History Curriculum this year with my 1st grader and I am wanting to construct a timeline and yours is the best I have seen! :) I was wondering, however, how you made your cards...like where you got the pics from. Just a google search? There are a few people needed to go along with what we are learning that are not included in your set that I would want to print out and make for us.

    Thank you for sharing these with us all. So thankful to have found your blog. I am now following via email! :)

  17. I used Adobe Illustrator, and pulled images from Google. Not sure if that is Kosher or not, but I know of no other way :)

  19. These resources are amazing!!!! Beyond last year went fine, but I was not very organized. Bigger will go great because of your resources!!!! What a blessing!

  20. So glad these are still getting some use!

  21. Thank you so much for sharing your work! Right now I'm getting 21 cards per page and would like it to be more like 10 per page. Is there a way to get them a little bigger? Thanks Again!

  22. I made them this size to fit in our timeline. I don't know how to make them bigger without remaking them. You could possibly increase the percentage on your printer setting.

  23. I just found your site! I am wondering what the size dimensions are for these wonderful timeline pictures? Thanks so much!

  24. These would be perfect for our American History studies. Thank you so much :)

  25. I'm new to HOD and really find your site helpful. What I don't understand is what the timeline sheets are for. The timeline figures don't go on them so what does?

    Thank you for sharing all of your tips and printables. :)

    1. In Bigger Hearts they have to do a timeline entry, so I made those pages so there was a place to do that. I made the timeline figures for our wall timeline. The wall timeline is my own doing and not a part of the HOD plans.

    1. This made me smile. I was (just today) working on timeline figures for HOD RtR, and was feeling weary. Knowing these help others makes it worth the effort :) Thank you for the encouragement!
