PROJECT: THE CLOCK OF EONS

PROJECT: THE CLOCK OF EONS The Clock of Eons is a graphic aid to help you visualize the geologic time scale. It's difficult for us to understand how much time it's taken for the earth to become what we know today. We can read about it, but it's hard to comprehend the vast amounts of time. In addition, because they vary in length, it can be hard to remember how long it took for each phase of development. OBJECTIVES Compare the lengths of the major eons of geologic time. Identify significant events in each eon. Geologic Time The Clock of Eons uses the analogy of a circular clock to represent the development of our planet in geologic time. One can see at a glance the relative time lengths of each eon. So how does this Clock work? The Clock represents geologic time on the Earth since its birth to the present, from the initial events that brought about the formation of Earth to now. Each hour represents approximately 375 million years. Materials Computer-based graphics program or Posterboard Colored pencils or markers Directions You are going to design a clock to represent the different geologic eons throughout Earth's history. Here are the steps you need to take to complete your geologic time scale clock: Research how long each eon lasted. You also might want to include the three eras of the most recent eon. Knowing that each hour of the clock is about 375 million years, determine how many hours each eon takes up on our 12-hour clock. For example, if an eon took 750 million years, that would take up two hours of the clock. Within each eon, identify major events and the types of life that dominated the earth during that time. How you design your clock is up to you. You can use a computer program to design your Clock of Eons or you can go old school and use poster board and markers. Let your imagination soar and create a Clock of Eons that will surely impress!
