Miniature Environment Sets Info

The Prehistoric Miniature Environments are the perfect way to bring the Time Line curriculum to LIFE!

Each set includes representative animals (and occasionally plants, early humans, and volcanoes) to allow students to set up environments for imaginative play, story-telling, and creative writing. The accompanying e-book includes everything you need to create scenes for the animals, identification materials for each species and time period, grammar cards for writing, and teacher lesson guides with instructions for use.

We’ve done all the preparation for you!

These sets are specially selected, organized and numbered to cover represented time periods and species.

For each set, we purchase 10 to 12 different Safari Toobs. We combine the animals to make our uniquely organized sets and number each figure for identification. Each set comes with an Identification chart that lists the primary time period in which the animal lived along with behavioral identifiers to help the student create realistic dramas in their play.
