The Sections

The Yearly planner is divided in 14 sections, each depicting a different Historical Period in Chronological order as well as the changements of the seasons through the different Biomes of Europe and North America.


The Historical Eras

Our Calendar immerses us in history in a simple and engaging way. For each period, each day is attributed to a historical person who had a significant influence on the world today. Together they form our "ancestors" as the term is generally used in oral cultures to teach valuable lessons, both moral and technological.

Historical eras begin with the earliest civilizations of Sumer and Egypt, where you will encounter Enheduanna and Sin-Leqi Unninni. This is followed by Greece and Rome, where you will find people who are no doubt familiar, such as Leonidas, Aristotle, Julius Caesar and Jesus Christ. From today, discover and discuss the historical personality of the day!
