Famous Figures of Ancient Times
If you have multiple children, then you no doubt have noticed the unique proclivities of each one. Our middle child lived for art. Her most prized possessions were a tape dispenser, scissors, and endless amounts of paper. Famous Figures of Ancient Times was made for such a child.
While you read historical accounts aloud, your avid artist can color in the detailed figures of twenty people who shaped history, such as Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Hannibal and his elephant, and others. A hole-punch and common fasteners allow their arms and legs to move and their swords and shields to flash. For the meticulous child who wants to color it exactly right, matching pre-colored action figures are also included.
"Great for kids who like crafts: Detailed, colored figures from history, from Narmer to Augustine, to cut out and assemble. The figures are on cardstock with moveable joints. Good for decorating timelines or just for fun." - Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise, authors of The Story of the World
Another outstanding component of
Timberdoodle's 2014 First-Grade Curriculum Kit!
Emperors! Conquerors! Philosophers! These twenty 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, 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 with moving figures! Features of This Book:
Book includes a short biography of each historic figure... from Narmer, who united Upper and Lower Egypt, to Augustine, a leader of the Church at the fall of the Ancient Roman Empire.

Even very young children can use these moving figures to sense the wonder of history.
