I was wondering if anyone knows of a book or timeline that lays out major (and minor) science inventions along side history? I came across a good idea but would rather not have to do all the work myself if it has already been done!
I love our timeline. The four sections fit perfectly on our school table (old kitchen table) and I stuck a piece of cleary vinyl from Walmart over the top of it. My son will occasionally look at, but I forget…need to incorporate into our history more:) HTH some, Gina
Another possibility would be The Timetables of History. It goes through history and lists what was happening concurrently in the fields of History/Politics, Literature/Theater, Religion/Philosophy/Learning, Visual Arts, Music, Science/Technology, and Daily Life. Mine is the size of a large phone book, and I’ve used it for many years now. It starts out with larger chunks of time, but by AD 500 it’s going year by year. Good resource.
I’m adding ToH toy list. What a great reference to have on hand.
My only suggestion isn’t as detailed, but you can follow the timeline through book titles listed under both history and science topic headings (and others) in Christine Miller’s All through the Ages: History through Literature Guide. http://www.nothingnewpress.com.
