Where is today?

 

imgres-6“Here is Today” is a wonderful and deceptively simple graphic illustrating this day in time as it relates to the age of the earth, the arrival of insects, and a number of other points of interest along the evolutionary path of the universe. One can only hope that as we are constantly moving towards the use of more technology in classrooms, this is the sort of thing that will emerge as a way to highlight key concepts in science classes. In the meantime, though, have fun clicking your way through time and perhaps learning something new along the way (who knew that the current epoch was named “Holocene?”)

  1. My mom’s 3rd/4th-grade class has been working on timelines as far back as scientists can detect until today, so I’ll definitely show her this tool. Thanks for sharing!
