Beginning with the formation of the Earth about 4.6 billion years ago, we will learn about what early Earth may have been like, when life first began, and how plants and animals evolved to create the modern species that exist today. All of this fascinating information will be presented within the lens of the Geologic...
Students will learn about the main Eras and Periods of the Geologic Time Scale, including their names and approximate times in history. Students will understand how the Earth was likely formed, and the process of how different life forms evolved throughout time.

Students will also use their new knowledge to make predictions about what Earth may look like in the far future.
