It’s been a long while since you’ve seen our timeline and it’s been even longer since we cleaned it.
and wash and dried each card.
You can’t imagine how dusty these things were.
We live facing the base of an inclined street and I swear everyone’s dust and dirt blows in my front door and down through my hallway!
After everything was spruced up, the boys and I worked together to create new timeline cards. We make these ourselves. The boys enjoy selecting the images we use and I get the dull job of cutting out all of the cards…twice!
Yes, it’s a proper timeline – one that starts at creation. 🙂
Sometimes, it can be tricky to merge secular dates with our timeline, but we do our best and use those inconsistencies as lessons in themselves.
I’ve got a bit of a colour theme happening in our timeline – here you can see light green for Aussie events, pale blue for polar events, pale red for scientists, cream for literature, and textured red for Russian events.
When we were pegging our cards back on the wire, we ran out of my preferred pegs, so currently we have sliding metal pegs and wooden pegs. I like the look of the metal pegs but they slide too freely along the wire leaving all of the cards clumped up at the end of the wire. So I need to buy more mini wooden pegs.
And this is our finished timeline…well finished until we add more to it and we already have a new list developing.
