Konos Timeline Idea

We used to have a timeline across the wall down the hallway. That was a little hard on the paint and kind of a pain to keep the paper characters from falling off the wall when the kids kept dragging hands or shoulders along the wall. So my brilliant wife came up with the idea of using poster board putting the Konos timeline into a giant book. Take a look. She likes the handmade people better than the pre-made ones. She bought a book of pre-made ones, and she will still use some, but the kid-made ones are just so much more "cheery" looking.

To use the timeline, you just add things as you study history and the timeline provides a visual of how one historic event relates to other historic events, even if they are on different continents.
