Rubber Stamps for the Timeline of Life Calendar

I just found a really cool website for rubber stamps, beeswaxrubberstamps.com. So many of the stamps are perfect for the Montessori Second Great Lesson: The Coming of Life. Especially if you are making a Timeline of Life calendar, or a game where your child has to match the pictures to what geologic time period they evolved in!

These stamps are economical because you can buy them unmounted (rubber die only), cling mount (rubber die on cling foam cushion), or wood mount (rubber die on foam cushion on white maple wood).

Here are some of my favorites... and when I place an order it'll be a big one! I will probably wait until I have students in-person again, and we make Timeline of Life calendars (each day of the calendar = 12.5 million years).

One of the most kid-friendly resources for the Geologic Periods is the book set by Doug and Claudia Mann. Recently updated with new editions!

Note: I see that Beeswax Rubber Stamps also makes a lot of stamps that would be useful for Ancient Civilizations as well and even the Story of Money and the Story of Written Language! I wonder if they are Montessorians?
