What are the story line figures?
This is a bonus section of the Bible Timeline Figures. It includes figures with no dates or events recorded. Read the Bible story to the child. GIve them the figures for that story and have them place the events in chronological order. Have the student retell the story in their own words using the figures to help spur their memory. Great for practice in sharing the gospel.
What kind of coding is included in the figures?
Icons in the corner are used to identify topics, kings, and books of the Bible.
- Topics include: person, event, prophet, judge.
- Kings identified: Kings of Judah, Kings of Israel, or the unified kingdom of Israel
- Books of the Bible are classified as: law, prophetic, history, gospels, poetry, and epistles.
- Different borders depict the time period of each event.
The set does not have every event I need, where can I get more figures?
No set can include every event that happened in world history. Therefore we've included a variety of generic figures in this set. Be creative. Make your own from the generic figure. Copy pictures from books, encyclopedia, or lnternet, or have students draw an image. To include world history events check out our Historical Timeline Figures download.
How do I attach the timeline figures to my timeline?
You can use tape, glue stick, or print on adhesive paper to peel and stick.
How do I protect the quality of the figures?
Cover each figure with lamination before adhering to the timeline. Clear wide packing tape works great as a "poor man's laminator."
I don't have a color printer. Can I still use these figures?
Yes. The timeline figures can be printed in black and white (grayscale). Encourage students to color them for added interest.
Can I select and print only one timeline figure at a time?
There are 20 timeline figures to a page. You can select one page at a time and print one page of figures but you can't choose to print one figure. Cut out the figure you need and place the remainder in a clear pocket protector stored in the back of the notebook.
Can I use these timeline figures for my school?
Permission is granted to print the timeline figures for your family or small group (no more than 6 people), but the copyright restricts reproduction for an entire school or classroom. Each classroom teacher wishing to use the figures should purchase their own copy of the download file and then obtain licensing for the number of students who will benefit from the figures.
Can I print the figures in a different size?
Some printers have the option to print a percentage smaller or larger. Check your printer options. Another way to resize the page is through Microsoft Word. Here are the basic instructions:
- In Acrobat Reader choose the "Grab Graphic" button (next to "Text Edit").
- Paste into a Word document.
- Right click and format the page of figures in layout so it is in front of text.
- Make it any size you choose and print.
The timeline figures are pdf files which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to be installed on your computer. If your computer doesn't already have Acrobat Reader installed (and it probably does), you can download it here.
