This site introduces the significance of the geologic time scale to students. Students will be able to review major events that have occurred throughout Earth's history as well as order events on a timeline. Students will also learn about relative and absolute dating techniques and details about the various eons, eras and periods on the geologic timescale. At the end of the activity, students will be quizzed over five questions relating to the tour.
