Have you tried to guess the Earth’s age?This world is far older than you can gage. Try, if you tocount to four billion, then add an other six hundredmillion. Earth is older than you can see any river,mountain, valley, or tree.
Mother Earth is
four thousand, six hundred million years old(4,600
million = 4.6 billion),
give or take a few hundred million years.It is older than anything you can see around you.The age of Earth is so long compared to all periods of time that we humansare familiar with, it has been given a special name:
.The age of Earth is as vast in time as the universe is vast in space. It is noteasy to really get a "feel" for 4,600 million years! One way to try to get a "feel"for how big it is, is to break the number down into smaller pieces that perhapswe can understand. Just for fun you might try the activity, "What is a Million?"Then try to think about 4,600 million!
