Description of Activity

The time line is updated to add Paganism.

Ask participants to help you place the sticky notes. "Paganism" should be on the far left, with other indigenous, ancient religions. Remind participants that Wicca and Neo-Paganism, as practiced today, are very recent religions. Place them on the time line.
