Free Timeline Figures for your Homeschool Matching Story of the World
Update: September 10, 2020
It appears that Mary’s blog featured in this blog post is no longer valid. It actually has been down for a while already.
I have collected the links to the timeline figures that very kind homeschool moms have left in this post comments. Thank you ladies, you rock 🤗

END OF UPDATE (Make sure to still read this post to learn how to use the timeline figures with the timeline I created. It’s all here!)
I discovered Tending Our Lord’s Garden, a blog about homeschooling, with lots of goodies for all of us who follow Story of the World. Mary, her owner, has shared beautiful timeline figures to go along with Story of the World. Mary does not only share these gorgeous timeline figures, she also shares notebooking pages, and lesson plans. I downloaded only the timeline figures, which go along perfectly with the timeline pages I created and have already shared with all of you, a little while ago.
So, in order for the whole package to be complete, I put together a little tutorial (video above) on how to print Mary’s timeline figures in the right size for us. Her figures would be too large for our timeline sheets otherwise. I believe Mary’s intention was for these figures to go on a wall timeline.
I’m attaching my pinterest board here where I’m gathering all fun world history resources. Thus, our timeline, Mary’s figures, and other cool stuff is all in there.
Nevertheless, all the links you need to complete the timeline and timeline figures are here too:
- FREE printable timeline pages, dated, and color coded by historical time periods
- FREE printable timeline figures, created by Mary at Tending Our Lord’s Garden:
Story of the World, volume 1, Ancients (this screenshot helps you know where to click to get the downloads)
Story of the World, volume 2, The Middle Ages (this screenshot helps you know where to click to get the downloads)
Story of the World, volume 3, Early Modern Times (this screenshot helps you know where to click to get the downloads)
Story of the World, volume 4 (at the time of this post, volume 4 resources were not up yet. The good news is that Mary has a notice with the intention to do so. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.)
- Adobe Reader software. Needed to print multiple pages at once at the appropriate size for our timeline pages.
So, I think that’s all you need! Big, big thanks to Mary for creating and sharing this wonderful resource. We truly appreciate it. Super Hero and I have enjoyed using these a great deal!
In case you have Story of the World in audio format, and would like to learn how to load it into your iPad, check out my video explaining how to do it. We love having SOTW in the iPad, it’s encouraged Super Hero to keep listening at any moment, just because it’s there so readily!
Happy timelining! Let me know how it goes 🙂
