"The books lay out a comprehensive, chronological program that should cover all of the content required for U.S. History....practical for homeschoolers."
"They offer a great deal of flexibility as to how many activities to complete and how deeply to delve into reading and research."
"Rather than a straight-line timeline, The GIANT American History Timeline books have students create a number of posters with arrows showing their relationships. You can make the timeline simple or you might make it more complex."
"Instead of feeding information directly to students, it poses questions and directs student reading in search of answers."
"I encourage you to work from The GIANT American History Timeline books as your core since I believe this approach can provide great motivation for students."
"Generally it takes me longer to get to reviewing new items, but the timeline books really caught my attention...."
"I really like The GIANT American History Timeline."
"It’s a game changer, for sure....a wonderful timeline for homeschool families....we’re doing much more than adding pieces to a wall each day....we’re reviewing dates, events, and movements. We’re answering questions, viewing these events from a fresh perspective."

Creating Giant Timelines is as Easy as 1-2-3!
1. Students complete activity sheets
Each activity sheet focuses on an important date, event, person, place, or idea.
Students create and complete maps, charts, graphs, and graphic organizers; analyze primary sources, compare and contrast time periods, and more.
Activity sheets incorporate critical thinking skills, including chronological thinking, main idea and details, comparing and contrasting, cause and effect, and more.
"The books include everything you need (and honestly, more) to create a variety of different timelines....Creating a timeline allows for endless possibilities, but with very little work for mom."
2. You and your kids create timelines with the activity sheets
The GIANT American History Timeline provides a comprehensive picture of all major periods in American history.
Two timeline plans are provided for each of the 16 units. One is a basic chronology and the other portrays complex historical developments.
You can also customize timelines for any time period, or historical theme, or to cultivate critical thinking skills.
"Our homeschool has delighted in discussing the historical events as we determine where the timeline pieces need to go....Affordable—for a large homeschool family on a budget, this factor makes me smile."
3. Guide students with extensive teaching materials
Detailed teaching directions for each unit include Unit Overview, Focus Activities, Constructing the Timeline, Critical Thinking Skills, Individual Activity Sheet Notes, and a Unit Assessment.
