Timeline books: discussions of first aircrafts and the Wright brothers-with comparison of what the times were like in the time that engine powered planes were invented.
The above brought up conversations of what life was life in various years of family members’ births. These birthdays were then looked up in the history books which led to more conversations.
Adding photography of three of the timeline books we are using right now. These are not as detailed as our large history timeline books but are fun to stretch out on a table or the floor to see the whole timeline as a whole—especially while discussing each individual time period—so that you can actually SEE the relationship between one time period and the next. It is a fantastic comparison tool.
