Rhyme Your Way Through History!
One of the best ways to learn facts is to make them fun and poetic. Rhythm and rhyme are related to music, and music is related to memory.
Drill doesn’t have to be dull!
The package includes 117 illustrated timeline cards with fun, educational rhymes such as:
The only Catholic signer
Of the Declaration,
Charles Carroll helped to frame
Our nation’s great foundation.
Daniel Boone, the frontiersman,
Put Kentucky on the map.
He blazed a trail on his Wilderness Road
Through the Cumberland Gap.
Each rhyme teaches interesting facts about a person or event from history.
The front of each card includes the name of the person or event along with an illustration.
A 4-line rhyme on the back of the card enables the child to practice memorizing the rhyme.
Once memorized, they will only need to see the name and illustration to be able to recite the rhyme.
Many words from history are difficult to pronounce so we have also included a pronunciation key. To memorize the rhymes correctly you’ll need to know how to pronounce the words and once you’ve mastered the pronunciations the words will roll off of your children’s tongues as they delight in their unusual sounds!
American History Rhyme-Line Cards cover the history of the Americas from the early explorers, missionaries, and settlers through World War II.
