Emperors! Conquerors! Philosophers! These 20 people shaped history and our world today. Now you can make real moving figures of these world-changing individuals from thousands of years ago. Cut-and-color or pre-colored action figures really move as you play out the lives of Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Jesus, King David, Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi (builder of the Great Wall of China), Hannibal (and his elephant!) and others.

Their stories are right in the book - or make up your own stories about these powerful men whose fame has lasted for thousands of years. Yes, they really move! All you need is this book, a hole punch, and easy-to-use fasteners for assembly. Move their arms and legs, use their swords and shields and act out the real stories of history or make up your own and travel through time. Ideas for using the Famous Figures:

Play may not seem like "school work" but children internalize the lessons they learn through their imagination and active free time. Learning the stories and then acting them out, whether formally or informally solidifies their knowledge into joyful learning experiences that can last a lifetime. Do your chldren need something to do with their hands while they listen to you read aloud? Let them play with their King David action figure while you read the story of David in the Bible.

When they're done playing with the figures, string them on a piece of yarn and hang your living timeline on a wall
