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).
15 billion years
We spent quite a while understanding the numbers -
the scale, inches representing millions of years,
what a million or a billion years actually are...
so it ended up being a very mathematical history lesson.
