In order to better understand evolutionary history, we will be creating a timeline starting from 4.6 billion years ago. I started us off with the Hadean Era so you have an example of what I am expecting.
You can work together in your breakout sessions by utilizing Padlet. Here is the link to the padlet we are using for this assignment:
https://padlet.com/mgarciabioprof/HistoryofLife (Links to an external site.)
For each era or period that your group is assigned, you will be describing/designating the:
Time frameMeaning of the nameCharacterize the terrestrial, atmospheric and oceanic conditionsDescribe the climateWhat type of organisms were alive/evolving during this time?Any other interesting facts you came acrossYour textbook, Chapter 21 is a great resource. You can also click on the following links:

When your group has completed your sections of the padlet placed in the correct order on the timeline, you will submit the padlet URL.
