Don’t you just love it when you have a problem and you find a product that will solve your specific problem EXACTLY? Well, that is just what Grapevine has done for me with their newest products: Timelines and Wall Timelines!
We are already Grapevine fans! My kids and I LOVE stick-figuring through the Bible. In fact, we are about to finish up The Life of Joseph. We took a little break and worked on The Birth of Jesus over the Christmas holidays! Now that school is back in full swing, we are excited to finish up Joseph and then begin the Old Testament Timeline!
PROBLEM: Now, back to my problem. For the last few years we have proudly displayed the timelines that my daughter made using our My Father’s World curriculum on the wall in our classroom. Well, now that the boys have started doing the same timelines, I wanted to display theirs. However, that meant that my daughter’s needed to come down…and I didn’t know what to do with them.
PROBLEM SOLVED: Well, Grapevine has completely solved my problem with their Blank Wall Timelines. So, I know what you are thinking…how did a WALL timeline solve the problem of needing to take your daughter timeline OFF the wall? Well, first I printed out the blank timeline. (View a color sample here.) I trimmed the pages and taped them together using the timeline folding method shown at Ginger-Snap-Shots. Then I glued the images from my daughter’s original timeline onto the blank wall timeline.
Using the special taping/folding method allowed me to fold the wall timeline so that it could be easily stored away.
The special taping allows the timeline to retain the folds and lay completely flat when it is stored away. Here is the wall timeline looks like all neatly folded up.
Below is a photo of what the timeline looks like spread the length of my dining room table! I just love how it looks! Isn’t the scroll design great? Now I have a cute, space-efficient way to store the timeline that was once on the wall!
More about the timeline: The blank timeline measures over 10 feet long. However, you can print as few or as many pages of the timeline that you need. I only needed 8 of the 12 pages of the pdf to accommodate my daughter’s timeline.
The blank wall timelines can be used with any study requiring a timeline! There is plenty of room to chronologically draw (or in our case, glue) important events onto the timeline, making it a great visual for any classroom!
Not only does Grapevine have blank timelines (both in color and black/white), but they also have Old Testament and New Testament Wall Timelines, plus Old and New Testament Timeline books/eBooks with teacher notes for instruction. The OT and NT Wall Timelines are designed so that they can be used in conjunction with the corresponding Timeline booklets.
Whether you are in need of the Old Testament or New Testament timeline, or even the blank one to accommodate whatever information you would like to chronologically display, the Grapevine Wall Timelines would make a wonderful addition to your homeschool!
