How to Make Your Own Blank Timeline Book


Create a Blank Timeline Book for each of your students easily with cardstock, labels, and a 3-ring binder. Better still, if you don't need to cover the entire span of history, you can create only enough pages for one of four historical eras: the Ancient World, Middle Ages, Age of Discovery, or Present Era. 

Cardstock gives your Blank Timeline Book sturdy pages to withstand heavy use and glue as you add Timeline figures to your book throughout the school year.  This ebook includes templates for printing Blank Book year-spans on labels, since running cardstock through your printer can be extremely hard on home printers.

In addition to creating a Blank Book, tools are provided to help you plan what Timeline Figures to include in your book, and free web resources are given to help you find & create those Figures.

Students can personalize their own Timeline Books as they choose. Timeline books help students visualize the progression of important people and events through the ages.

I really liked this Timeline. It's neat that we can add extra pages if we need them without messing up an organized book. Only drawback was that some of the labels printed crooked and I had to write the dates at the top myself. This Tim [...]

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.
