    I was planning on ordering Uncle Josh’s Outline Map Book, but then I came across this: http://www.exodusbooks.com/details.aspx?id=28636 Has anyone used this?  Can anyone compare the two?  

    And, along the same lines, has anyone used the Home School in the Woods Timeline Figures CD?  I’d love to purchase it, but $75 is a bit steep right now…any suggestions for alternatives?  Or would the CD just be worth it? 

    Thanks All,

    Someone else posted this link on here and I bookmarked it: http://www.geog.byu.edu/outlineMaps.dhtml

    For timeline figures, there have been two other threads you can read:

    Just wanted to mention that the sample for the World Maps product includes Canada – and it is up-to-date, including the New Territory that was created in 1999.  (Many places don’t have that new territory, including the maps on Donna Young.)

    Looks pretty good!

    Thanks to the link from BYU – thta is a great source of some outline maps!  (just wish they also had them with labels…

    Thanks everyone!  I bookmarked the BYU site too-great resource.  I think I’d be able to easily find a labeled map somewhere for me to make a “master” then use those for the children.  And I’m glad to know that Canada is up to date- that’s something I wouldn’t have thought to check EmbarassedI can always count on this forumWink

    Homeschool In The Woods maps are awesome. 😀 So are their timeline figures. 😉

    For timeline figures, I plan on cutting photos/illustrations out of some old textbooks and encyclopedias that we have.  We will also use the pictures on notebook pages or written narration.
