Adam’s Chart of History timeline and Teacher’s Guide

on September 29, 2012

If you appreciate history and want a history timeline that is based on and includes detailed Bible history then look no further than Adams Map of History!  This is a beautiful time line that spans over 20 feet and starts at Creation (4004 B.C. to 1870 and our 19th President) – all accordion folded so that it’s 21 panels neatly fit into a beautiful cover.  This timeline is beautifully illustrated to show many time periods such as the Babylonians, Greeks and modern times.  This time line is a wonderful asset to adults and children alike and will be a treasured item in your home if you want your history learning to show HIStory.


The time line is based on Usher’s work, The Annals of the World, which is still considered a classic among Christians both theologians and lay people alike.  If you want to know what was going on when Solomon was reigning or how the Bible was worth in such and such a year then this time line will give you the answer as well as much more information that you never learned in school and all from a Christian world view.  There is no other time line that I know of that has this much extensive information or this size on the market today.  This version is cased and includes a free, duplicate of the original key  from 1871, which adds to the nostalgic feel of the time line.  This is a wonderful value at $39.99 and will be a great classic for your family to own, there is also an unbound version if you’d prefer to hand it on the wall.





If you are wondering how to incorporate the Adam’s Chart of History into your school day then this is the way – the teacher’s guide.  With activities, ideas and skills tests this teacher’s guide will be a one-stop source for knowing how to use the chart in your classroom whether it’s at home, in church or in a brick and mortar school setting.  It gives a specific how to start using the teacher guide and chart with step by step ideas and how to put each one into practice and then moves on to a panel by panel overview.  For example, the third panel covers 3500 BC to 3200BC some of the activities is finding when the “Stone Age” occurred and drawing a map from your house to the library.


This is a 32 page booklet that is full of comprehensive information, including the Higher Order Thinking Skills of Bloom’s Taxonomy and how to integrate these ways of thinking through knowledge, analysis, evaluation and others to make use of the chart/timeline depending upon your child’s age and developmental level.  The tests are meant to be open book to aid in remembering the facts, not just rote memorization and if you want you can have your child record their answers on a separate sheet of paper.  The teacher’s guide is $6.99 and is an invaluable tool if you want to use the timeline in your lessons.


**Disclaimer:  I was provided a copy of the timeline and teacher’s guide from New Leaf Press in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given.
