Geologic Timeline Lab, Geologic Time, History of the Earth Activity / Lab

This geologic timeline activity works well with 7th - 10th grade earth science students. Included are six different tables of events on six different masters so that even with a class of 36, having small groups of three ensures six different timelines with only two small groups making the same one. The activity sheet guides students through creating a scale of geologic time and then has students use that math to calculate how far down their timeline their events should be marked.

Andy Peterson and Zack Patterson use the seesaw to illustrate the amazing implications and uses of the lever.
