Frequently Asked Questions
Who are your books for?
How are your books used?
Cut, color, and assemble historical figures to supplement any history curriculum, unit study, or as a stand alone activity:
Color and assemble the figures during a history lesson, read aloud time, or just for fun.
Decorate a time line with assembled figures.
Include the figures as a project or activity in a history unit study.
Read biographies then use figure as a prop to narrate a short summary of his or her life.
Put on play with historical figures interacting or make up your own stories.
Include figures in a lap-book project or with a written report.
Make puppets with string, craft sticks or pipe cleaners.
Produce a stop-motion animation clip using magnets or felt on the back of the figures.
How do you make a moving figure?
Chose either a black and white line drawing or colored historical figure and tear out the page along the perforation. Children who like to color may use colored pencils, markers or crayons to complete the figure. Cut out the individual pieces and punch holes for the fasteners. Turn the pieces over so the assembly letters are visible. Match the letters together and insert fasteners from the front to the back. Press the prongs flat and repeat until all of the joints are fastened.
