About the Program
The world is OLD. Lets find out how old it is, how scientists measure this and how the land and climate we see changes over time.
We will learn what the Earth is made of, as well as learn to identify different types of rocks and get a demonstration of the Rock Cycle. There will also be an introduction to the concept of Geological Time, which will include a fun quiz to remember the names of different eras and epochs. We will also talk about climate, as well as weathering as an agent of change.
