Free Printable Maps, Timelines and World History Teaching Aids

This post is going to serve me as a reference list of resources. I hope it helps some of you as well. You might want to “pin” it or bookmark for future use.  I may be adding to this list later as I find other resources that I like.

 free homeschooling history and map printables

Maps

 

Free Printable color maps. This is a very nice government resource. You’ll find nice maps labeled and blank for USA: States & Capitals, USA: Rivers & Lakes and more. When you click that link above just scroll down to the section that says: “Printable Maps List: Reference and Outline Maps of the United States”.

This site also has free printable maps and I think it would be a good site to check out. I’ve found other free maps in the past but I think one or both of  these links have some better maps than I’ve used in the past.

 

Free & Cheap historical timelines, figures and images.

 

I loved this option of having a row of empty boxes for the kids to glue in or draw in their own timeline events. I also like what DonnaYoung.org offers for free timeline layouts here.

 

Free Clip Art & more: 

 

Here are a few I’ve personally visited: here’s one,  here’s one, here’s one,  here’s a free historical portraits in the public domain, and here is over 60,000 pieces of educational clip art. I haven’t used any of these yet, however I am taking a liking to that last one.

 

Scroll down to the purple here to see the list of FREE Montessori printables for cards or other projects.

 

I’m not sure I want to depend on going the “free” route to find free images to print and cut out, but I  also don’t want to spend a lot of money on timeline figures. I didn’t like the prices I was finding on Ebay and Amazon. I did find some VERY affordable printable sets from this Montessori site. What I like about this option vs. searching high and low for something free that fits our need is that these are all already packaged and super-duper affordable… seriously like a buck or three. However…

 

—-> I’m almost convinced that I want to buy one or both sets of just the timeline cut-outs cd‘s from Hold That Thought. I just printed out their free demo page of 9 black/white cut-outs and I like it plus the price is under $20 for around 800 to over a thousand timeline images per cd. The two sets are Bible/Church History and US/World History. Our timeline would look more uniform and consistent if I went this route vs. taking bits and pieces from all over the web.

    • Ah, when I have a post like this I try to get it on your link ups but I must have missed it this week. I try to get on there soon after your link up goes live. I’m on there now. Thanks for the reminder! I usually wait till I get an email reminder so I don’t know what happened this week.
