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 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.
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.
