This is an excellent timeline kit created by Dawn Kennedy of Dawning Ideas. The timeline itself is a long accordian style timeline made out of heavy parchment card stock. There is a bold line running the length of the timeline with increments for the date divisions. Otherwise, the timeline is blank. It is designed for the student to fill in with dates, events and figures. Beautiful timeline figures are included in this set, as well as a travel log, gel pens, a glue stick and guidelines for putting the whole thing together. This is a wonderful educational tool and the perfect companion to the Ancient map packet.
