This lesson discusses the clear evidence of geological events over many millions of years. Students count the number of varves (annual layers of sediment) in shale billets, taken from the Green River Formation in Wyoming. The count is then extended to reflect the entire 260 meters of sediments where the billets originated, a period of approximately 2 million years. This provides a tangible experience for a sense of time, from both a human perspective (vast period) and a geological perspective (very short period).
