Mapping change over time
Publication Date: January, 2012
Type of Resource: Information Sheet

This online resource details an activity where a class builds a geologic time line on a wall, adding one or two pieces of information each week.

Organisms are placed on the timeline, with a description of the evidence for its form and its position on the timeline.

It is suggested that this activity could be done at the start or end of a lesson each week during the topic.

Additional Information

This activity has been produced by the Nuffield foundation in partnership with the Society of Biology (UK) and is found on the Nuffield foundation website.

A Google search and textbooks are good sources for example geologic time lines.
