Trace the history of people through various time periods from the humans who lived with mammoth to today.

Using the red colour that is also found in other Montessori cosmic lessons this timeline draws out the history of humans introducing both key facts in human development along with interesting events and peoples. 

I designed this pack to help my 9-12 neurodivergent learners who find research with books overwhelming but are ready for more indepth study of humans.
