Product Overview

Understanding the unique needs of homeschooling families who are dedicated to implementing the Montessori method, we have thoughtfully designed a compact version of our renowned educational timeline. This adaptation is perfectly suited for home environments where space may be limited, yet the desire for comprehensive, quality educational tools is paramount.

Crafted with durability in mind, this timeline is printed on robust 350 gsm (or 150 lb) paper, ensuring longevity even in the most dynamic of home learning settings. This quality material choice reflects our commitment to providing durable, yet accessible resources for homeschooling families.

Our timeline is a living document, continuously enriched with insights from esteemed scientists from the Smithsonian Institute and Columbia University. Each contributing scientist not only brings a wealth of knowledge from their field but also possesses Montessori credentials, ensuring that the information is both academically sound and in harmony with Montessori principles. This collaboration embodies our "Total Montessori" ethos, where expert knowledge meets Montessori pedagogy.

Visually, the timeline is designed to captivate and educate. It features distinct colored lines to trace various evolutionary lineages, simplifying complex concepts and making it easier for children to follow the evolutionary journey leading to modern animals. Key events, like the Devonian explosion of plant life, are highlighted with detailed illustrations and clear lineage markings. This visual approach aids in understanding the intricate patterns of evolution, including the development of mammals.

Moreover, the timeline comprehensively covers all major extinction and glacial events, starting from the significant Proterozoic Era glaciations. This rich tapestry of information allows children to explore and understand the pivotal events that have shaped the course of evolution.

Our dedication to interconnected learning is evident in the design of this timeline. The imagery and lineage representations are consistent with other Montessori materials, such as the Tree of Life (Cladistic model). This consistency ensures a cohesive learning experience, allowing children to make connections and deepen their understanding of the natural world.
