This is how we set it up:
- Print out the timeline and the 3-part cards in color on cardstock.
- Cut them all out. For durability, laminate them.
- Lay out the timeline from 1700-1800.
- Place 3-part cards on the table and put them in order by date (start with 1707).
- Begin placing 3-part cards on the top and bottom of the timeline (alternating), near the date matching the timeline and the 3-part card.
- As the child does this, read the information and repeat the information on the cards.
- Print out the 3-part cards twice in color on cardstock.
- Cut them out. For durability, laminate them.
