Yesterday we did Presentation 1 in our History Manual which is introducing the children to the Precambrian Era, Paleozoic Era, Mesozoic Era, and The Cenozoic Era. We discussed the periods that are included in each Era. Also they were able to use the the Time Line to find out when did invertebrates, fish, reptiles, mammals, trilobites, and crinoids arrived on Earth. This Time Line is full of information and basically the first presentation was introducing the basic concepts to understand how to use the information on it.
On another note, I couldn't find out how the Time Line of Life is stored in any home school or Montessori setting. I searched one of my favorite stores(Target) and came up with this for solution .
