Oliver Wendell Holmes, born August 29, 1809, and died on October 7, 1894. Our timeline worksheet is a special printable packet of information about the author, a timeline worksheet of important events in his life, and a notebooking page for additional research. You’ll find it as part of a special blog series I’m writing for Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies. You can also find a FREE copywork excerpt of Oliver Wendell Holmes’ The Poet at the Breakfast Table here Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies AND a FREE copywork excerpt of The Professor at the Breakfast Table here on Blessed Beyond a Doubt.
In addition, if you click the Printable timeline index cards link below, instead of a single card for recording the date Oliver Wendell Holmes died, you’ll find a packet of Holmes and literary-themed cards for recording additional facts about his life and work.
