I am having a very hard time to wrap my mind around on how to create a "practical" timeline on my wall. Since I have a young student (DD 6) I just love the idea of a timeline displayed in the room for quick reference, maybe because I am a very visual learner. The problem is I have about 11-12 feet of wall space to use and I just can't figure out how to get several thousand years on one timeline? I see where a BOC is more practical because space there is almost unlimited. On the down side it is a book that needs to be pulled out and pages need to be turned so the effect of "history at one glance" is lost. Maybe I am just overrating the benefit of a timeline for my DD just because I would like it so much better? Anyway, if anyone is doing a wall timeline I would really really love to hear or even better see what you are doing!
