I am busy getting ready for my high school age son’s study of Modern History. We sat and discussed how he would like to document his reading and research and his choice was notebooking and a timeline. I knew just where to go for some help!
Having a membership in NotebookingPages.com’s Treasury is like having a whole notebook page store at your fingertips. I literally found what we were looking to use in a matter of two minutes. We decided the Book of Centuries pages were perfect and using the Modern Times set I printed out, hole punched, and inserted his whole first term’s pages quickly and easily. I know lots of my readers also use NotebookingPages.com’s Treasury and I thought I would share how we are using Book of Centuries pages and you could adapt the idea to your family. These pages would work with any grade level.
Here are a few of the ways we used the pages.
I then went back into the Modern Times set and printed the timeline pages for the 20th century. I hole punched the pages so they are side by side. He will fill in the dates and either draw or use images from the internet to decorate his timeline as he goes through his week’s reading.
This was a quick and easy way to set up his history narrations for the year. If he needs more pages, I will just pull up the NotebookingPages.com Treasury, the Book of Centuries, and find an appropriate page to print for his work. Note: There are Book of Centuries sets for all time periods you might need in your history study.

I also wrote a blog entry that talks about how to pick content for your notebooking pages in this blog entry: Narration in Our High School Plans. You also may want to read How To Choose Topics.
