(Mahalo to Hope Jahren for devising this lab)

The Geologic Time exercise gives students a chance to see how long ago various important Earth events occurred in a true scale.  It becomes apparent that most of what we know happened most recently.  We draw 3 parallel timelines that record all of Earth history, the history of life on Earth, and the geologic history of the Hawaiian islands.  We also beautify campus, at least temporarily.
