Timeline Notebook Pages (Lined)

A timeline is an excellent tool to help children visualize history. Somehow it seems to help all those people and events come together into one continuous story. In addition, it provides an ideal way to review and cement what has been studied.

While younger children may prefer a large wall timeline, many older students tend to prefer timeline notebooks. And if you’re already using notebooking as a learning tool in your homeschool, a timeline notebook may be a great fit for your family.

We are using these timeline notebook pages with our Mystery of History (Vol. I) studies this year, but they will work equally well with any history textbook or study method. The download contains 103 printable timeline pages with dates from 5000 BC through AD 2024. Date increments vary according to historic time period.

Date increments for timeline notebook pages:

  • 5000 BC – 3000 BC: 1000 years per page
  • 3000 BC – 1000 BC: 500 years per page
  • 1000 BC – AD 1000: 100 years per page
  • AD 1000 – AD 1600: 50 years per page
  • AD 1600 – AD 1800: 10 years per page
  • AD 1800 – AD 2024: 5 years per page

Available in two versions:

  1. Timeline Notebook Pages (Lined)
  2. Timeline Notebook Pages (Unlined)

  1. Thanks so much for the link. I was happy to subscribe and look forward to getting the timeline! I know my kids will enjoy using it. Many blessings, Lisa :-)

  2. Julie T. says:

    I just wanted to say thank you for the free time line! I really appreciate it. These look great!
    Happy Easter!

  3. Rachael says:

    Thank you so much!

  4. I cannot begin to thank you enough for these timelines! I have been searching for something like these. Thank you so much for answering a prayer!

  5. You wrote, “Kaylee and Keaton keep individual timeline notebooks. (I’ll be sharing more about the timeline notebooks in the next week or two.)” but I can’t find where you wrote more about the notebooks. I would really like to learn more about how you put them together and use them. Thanks.

    • You know, I don’t believe I ever actually wrote the post about their timeline notebooks. I do have a post scheduled for Sept. 9 that shows how I actually make their timeline notebooks. I will make a note to write a post showing how my kids use their timelines, though–probably the week after the first post.
      Thanks so much for pointing this out to me! :-)

  6. I have been wanting to use Mystery of History and finally we are going to use it this school year. I like your Timeline Notebook Pages. I am just wondering if you also Timeline Notebook Pages after AD 45? Thank you!

    • Hi Ann! This set goes clear through AD 2024, so you should be good for another 10 years or so. 😉 I do also have another set that ends at AD 45 with slightly different date increments.
      I hope you love MOH as much as we do!

      • Oh, Judy, now I found it. Thank you! (the date increments seem different to what you posted here: No matter what, this is a GREAT timeline, which will be a big help to our history study this year. :-)

        I have another question. You mentioned that you used ‘History Through the Ages timeline figures’. What I wante to know is that if all the figures from History Through the Age fit what we need from Mystery of History III or Mystery of History I? Since it is pricey, I just want to know if HTA provides at least ost of the figures for MOH III before the money is invested. Thank you!

        – Ann

        • We have only used MOH I and II so far, and I think ALL the figures have been in the History Through the Ages set–if not all, then definitely most. We haven’t used Vol. III yet, so I can’t be sure about that one. If you take a look at the MOH book, it actually tells you which HTTA figure to use for each person/event, so you could get a good idea of whether or not all the figures are in the set.

          And about the date increments–IF you have a minute, would you let me know where they are different? I really should make a note of that so people are aware of the discrepancy. Thank you! :-)

          • It is wonderful to know that HTTA does have the figures for MOH III. Thank you for providing the information, Judy.

            As to the date increments problem, I think that I figure out how you did it. So, there is no problem. :-) Once again, thank you for spending time doing it and mostly appreciate that you are willing to share it. I am excited to start our very first timeline this school year!

  7. I noticed the date discrepancy and was wondering if you would post a fix or email the font?
    The first set of timeline dates ends at AD 45 with the last few pages around 20-50 years per page (I think each is different). If you could add a page that was AD 50 to AD 100 (or whatever would match the next page) then those of us who used the other set can switch to the full timeline set. If that isn’t possible I understand.

    • Heidi, when I get a couple extra minutes I’ll take a look and see what the issue is. I think it would be possible to add a page or two to help the sets match up.

      • Thanks so much. I appreciate the work you put into these pages. I am not very patient with these kinds of projects but wanted to do a notebook timeline just like this. I am so grateful to you for posting the pages for everyone to use.
        PS I love, love, love the Kindle book emails.

  8. This is so cool, thanks for posting it! We’ve been using small poster boards, taped together in an accordion fold. I like it because we can stretch out a lot or a little, depending on what we want to look at. I’m sort of possessive of it, though, because I want it to look good and not get messed up! These pages will be great for my daughter to use. I’m thinking I could print on heavier paper and tape together to create an accordion fold so she can stretch out as much or little as she wants. I’m thinking there’s gotta be a way to create a cool cover to keep it nice and keep pictures in. OR take it to staples and spiral bind it on the short ends so that 2 pages can be seen stretched out together.

    • Nikki, I would LOVE to hear if you try an accordian fold or spiral-bound timeline!I think both of those options would work very well, and I know other homeschool moms would be interested in hearing about other options.

    This was extremely helpful along with the “How To” for timeline note booking. Thank you very much! God bless.

  10. Kirsten Joy says:

    Judy, love the notebooking pages!! Thank you!

  11. Blessings! says:

    Thank you for sharing these with all of us. I have been trying to work up the courage to do a centuries timeline as a family. This is a treat as the ones I keep finding cost something if not time to put them together. Have a grat day and thank you again. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!

  12. Blessings! says:

    We just got the Mystery of History Volume 1 and started right in but have our history timeline thing in the art book format. Do you have ideas or pictures as to how yours is going or turned out by chance? Thank you. Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!

  13. question….well, wait. First, thanks for these blank timeline forms! We have used them for several years now, and really love adding to our timeline as we go through history! Now for the question! I printed the timeline the last two years in portrait, but no longer see that option. I even went back to my homeshool fb page and followed the link from last year, and it brings me here, but no portrait printing. Help?

    • Trina, I don’t have any timeline pages in portrait layout (yet). I’m wondering if maybe you printed these using the portrait layout setting on your printer? Other than that, I have no idea. Sorry, not much help!

      • Hmmm….no telling! I did try and do that, but it did not work.

        That said, I was looking back through the older ones we have done, and I decided I like the landscape better anyway, so there you go! Off to print!

        Thank you!

  14. Thank you so much! This is just what I was looking for!!

  15. Do you have picture printables for the timeline events or where would I be able to find that? Thanks so much!

  16. Thank you!
