8 Percentage of Time: Deep time demonstration Hadean 17.5% Archaen 28.5% Proterozoic 42% Hadean 17.5% Archaen 28.5% Proterozoic 42% Paleozoic 7% Mesozoic 4% Cenozoic 1% Paleozoic 7% Mesozoic 4% Cenozoic 1% Let’s see how much of Earth’s geologic history was taken up by this eon. If we converted the whole history of the earth into a timeline 5 feet long, how much of line would the Proterozoic Eon take up. (Math!!! 60 inches x 17.5% = _______ inches)

9 Posters As long as your poster has all the information it should, you can design it how you want. For those of us who like a little guidance, here is what your first poster might look like… As long as your poster has all the information it should, you can design it how you want.

Of them

10 Proterozoic Eon We will watch a short video about the eon, then read a short description of it, and finally, talk about what happened in Utah at this time.

13 Check Your Work

14 How the Earth Was Made We are going to watch some short clips from the series “How the Earth Was Made”. Compare what they say with what you learned about each time period. If necessary, add some more details to your descriptions. We are going to watch some short clips from the series “How the Earth Was Made”.
