"Welcome to the Time Machine. Just point your mouse at the time scale to your
left and click on one of the intervals of geological time. A page relating to that
time will appear here, in this frame where you are reading now. It may be a page
about a fossil of that time, or a map showing the way the continents were then or
just an interesting point about the geology of that time. Some of the pages lead to
still other pages where you can find out even more.... Don't get lost in the Time
Machine!". Produced and directed by Paul Howell and a group of 4th grade students!
There are more than 2,200 Internet-based resources in the FileMaker Pro Database and many are appropriate for student projects.
