One of the fun aspects of Classical Conversations for us is the Timeline cards. This year, Classical Conversations started their own Classical Acts and Facts History Timeline cards that are just beautiful. They have a fact from history and then on the back some information about that time in history. They are laminated and durable so they are easy to use.
We store ours by time period in 4×6 binders inside half side page protectors to keep them in good shape and so that we are able to flip through for review.
Each week in Classical Conversations we go through 7 cards and work through the timeline starting with Creation until now. One of the ways that we are learning them is with hand motions. We have enjoyed using a wonderful You Tube video from another Classical Conversations family to learn our hand motions along with each week. (UPDATE: We no longer use the hand motions in the videos below because they cards have been updated and new motions have been learned. We access them through CC Connected.)
Even if you are not a Classical Conversations family, these wonderful Classical Acts and Facts History Timeline cards can be a wonderful way for you and your family to learn our history timelines and the hand motions make it that much more fun.
Check out this fun video about these beautiful cards over on You Tube.
