We're now doing 3 history lessons weekly. Most lessons consist of reading 5-8 pages, answering questions (together) in notebook, and drawing timelines. Here are some that I prepared in photoshop as visual aids for our class (and also just to figure it out in my own head before trying to teach it).

5,000 years

5 million years

15 billion years

what a million or a billion years actually are...
so it ended up being a very mathematical history lesson.
