Understanding geological time

Understanding geological time

Many incredible events have occurred from the beginning of the Earth until now – the formation of the oceans, the origin of life, the first animals, the rise and fall of dinosaurs, and the appearance and evolution of our own species, just to name a few. It is hard for us to understand the vast amount of time Earth has been in existence. This workshop will give you a perspective on the immensity of geological time. You will sort important geological and evolutionary events on ‘the washing line of time’.
