Earth, Life, and Time Colloquium Activities

The ELT colloquium is more than a standard lecture-format class. We also explore the natural world through hands on, collaborative exercises. Here are a few examples.

.

How vast is the stretch of geologic time? Students examine the history of the Earth and Life at a scale of 1 mm = 1 million years.

.

Learning how to reconstruct the evolutionary history of a group of organism is simpler when the creatures in question are mutant Mr. Potatoheads!

.

More than lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!). Looking at the diversity of living and extinct vertebrates.

.

The measure of the man... Students get a first-hand look at the practice of anthropometry.

.

Mapping out the lands of our ancestors, at various points in history.
