    Timeline with multiple cores

    For those of you running multiple cores, how do you do the Timeline? You have children in multiple grades, but the displayed timeline would show all of the pieces for the oldest child. Is that confusing to the youngers...they're seeing dates that they haven't learned about?

    For third grade, it seems like it utilizes both Christian Studies and Greek Myths. What if I wasn't planning on doing Christian Studies?

    Also, any creative display ideas? Nothing sticks to my walls. Seriously, I've even tried Gorilla Tape to no avail. Looking for pictures and ideas on how to display this thing for next year.

    I gave up on getting the cards to stick to my walls. We just use the timeline book and each child has their own. The Christian Studies entries are pretty much just major Biblical events. If you aren't trying to cover those you can just leave those pages blank.

      Ditto here. Not on the walls.

      We had it in our old house, vertical, taped on a ribbon from the ceiling down to the chair rail in the dining room. I have also seen it really cute in the HLS classrooms clipped with small laundry-ish clips onto a string - which you might be able to hang somewhere?

      But we have not had it up since we moved to the rental, then here. Still in a small box. Maybe next time around...ha!

        We do the small clothespin idea Sarah mentioned. You can buy the small clothespins in the office supply section at Walmart. I just used twine wrapped around a couple of thumbtacks to hang the cards from. I keep all cards up, all the time. Remember not to hang them where your student will be testing or you’ll need to cover them up or take them down during tests.

          We use a ribbon tacked to the wall and the small clothes pins. We are new to the timeline and have multiple kids doing it for the first time. I just chose one level of timeline events to cover for everyone (4th) and then next year will do another level..probably 6th. Then we aren’t overwhelmed trying to cover every event in one year. I haven’t had a younger kiddo trying to do it at a different pace but think I would start with a blank ribbon each year and add event tags for everyone as we move through time.
