Timeline Journal – Book of Centuries- Dates on Graph paper


Printable PDF to create your own journal


When I created a Timeline Journal / Book of Centuries for myself as an adult, I hand-wrote out everything. However, when I decided I wanted my sons to start a book, asking them to hand-write in all the dates seemed like too much, so I created my own template and printed it off for them.

My older son requested something like graph paper, so these files include a light 1/4 inch grid in the background. Some people choose to print on only one side of the page to make room for sketches or taped-in items on the blank sides!

Charlotte Mason prescribed that a Book of Centuries have a literal 100 years on each page. However, in my own book, I found that this left way too many blank pages early in the book and not nearly enough space to write it all in at the end of the book. So this book starts off with a page every 500 years, then 250, 200, 50, 20, and finally 10 years per page.

This product includes 3 copies of this file:

  • The full book, 86 pages, is designed to be printed on 8.5 x 11 paper.
  • The condensed version is also designed to be printed on 8.5 x 11 paper, but the dates appear at the top and middle of each page, so it’s 44 pages.
  • The smaller book is designed to be printed on 8.5 x 5.5 paper. (I was able to cut 8.5 x 11 paper in half and put it in my printer as “statement” size and print directly on that.)

You will receive 5 files:

  • 8.5 x 11 Cover Page
  • 8.5 x 11 File- Long form (86 pages)
