Materials Needed

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Construction paper that is large enough to construct a time line
Pencils and erasers
Colored pencils for the final drawing of the time line


First, you may need to talk to the students about time lines and how to construct their own time lines. A time line lists the main events that happened in a book and the days or dates that the events took place. The students will read The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As they read, they will write down the main facts and the order they happened. They also need to write down the dates or days that the events took place if the dates or days are mentioned. When they have finished reading the book, they are ready to write out their time lines. They need to use some plain paper at first before they make their final copy on white construction paper. When they are satisfied with their time line, they can copy it on the white construction paper with their pencils and then trace over the lines with colored pencils.


You can grade the students on the accuracy of their time lines and the neatness of their drawings.
