BLOSSOMS - Geologic Time

This BLOSSOMS lesson will help students conceptualize the enormity of geologic time and learn about important events in Earth’s history. Students will also learn how geologic time can help explain seemingly incomprehensible processes, like the formation of the Himalayan Mountains from a flat plain to their current height, and the evolution of a tiny group of reptiles into enormous dinosaurs.
