We can easily talk about a million years – but how can we give pupils an idea of how vast 1,000,000 actually is? Try our latest ELI 'How many for a million? How many sheets of graph paper for 1 million, or a 100 million, or a 1000 million?' Calculations to help pupils to visualise the enormity of a million years, and then 1000 million years.
There are other activities in this Geological time category.
