The Timeline Project

Quotes About This Product

This is the best thing I have bought for homeschooling--we love filling it in. And any time other kids come over, they are fascinated with it--it doesn't get better than this!" from Margaret in Maryland

"WOW!! A+++++" from Jame Bair

See History and how events relate...

Welcome to the Timeline Project. You’re about to embark on an exciting and enriching experience—and not just in education. As you work on your timeline, you will begin to see how specific events fit into history; how seemingly distant and unrelated battles, inventions, etc

can come to together in time, culminating in world-wide effect. And if nothing else, you will begin to have a greater grasp of World, as well as “specific” history.


This is a "hands-on" project (not already printed up) that is designed with the thought in mind that your student(s) will continue to work on adding to the timeline as s/he learns history over the school year(s)--we have been working on ours for several years and neighborhood kids are as thrilled about new additions as our kids are!. Pre-printed, illustrated Timelines are beautiful and "wow" us for a short time. If that is what you are looking for--this is not it. However, I have found that as the student(s) invests in filling in his/her timeline--there is not only lasting interest, but a tremendous pride in learning facts, inter-relationships of events, etc--and for the student(s) NOTHING congeals history like the TimelineProject!

a nice collection of thumbnail images to get you started on a small(ish), neat timeline. Why is small and neat good? because unless you have a really big house if you start out with pictures on your timeline more than an inch square or so you are goi [...]

I love the visuals and would find this very useful. However, due to little wall space I will not use this at this time. I would love to see this timeline in notebook form. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
