Title: The Grand Time Game
Url: http://fsc.fernbank.edu/Geology/GEOWEB/GrandTimeGame/GrandTimeGame.ht...
Publisher: Fernbank Science Center (Atlanta, Ga.)
Description: The Grand Time Game is a collection of activities that teach students about geologic time. The game elements consist of a tabletop model that demonstrates the geologic history of the Grand Canyon, a script in which students report selected events along the geologic time scale as the instructor operates the model, and a set of overhead transparencies that the instructor shows to illustrate the story. The materials also include an activity sheet for students to record important events as they progress, and a card game about fossils and geologic time, played in groups of three or four students after the script reading (the cards can also be pasted onto a calendar or timeline). Instructions for building the model are provided.
