I am only doing the simple wall-style timeline, but I am not going to affix it permanently to the wall. I am going to put it on 8x11 sheets and pull it out for school. I understand the mechanics of the timeline, I just cannot figure out how much to put on each 8x11 sheet (i.e. should I put 1 hundred year per sheet--1400, 1550, etc.?).
Would anyone be willing to post a pic of theirs? I'd be so grateful!!
Just a way down the road thought....
The Timeline in ADV can be very simple this year because you'll do more timelines each year. In EX1850 you'll have more of the same time frame that is covered in ADV. As you said, remember to keep the book out where you'll be able to see the pictures as you go along in school, don't just put a picture in the book and never look at it again.
And then in 1850-MOD, MFW provides a blank sketch pad for the timeline in year 5, which will have about 150 pieces in it. And it was special to my Oldest to take down the MFW pieces from the basement and living room walls and place them in the new book with the easy to follow instructions that Marie gave in the year 5 manual.
With ADV, it is not a super detailed timeline with every thing that happened , so keep it simple and realize that you'll do more in later years. Less might just be more at this age and stage.
just some thoughts for down the road planning.
