Students from the University's Department of Integrated Studies in Education used coloured sidewalk chalk to draw a timeline chronicling the history of Earth and its living things October 1. The activity was organized by PhD student and instructor Jason Wiles, along with Alex Sheftel, a PhD student in Physiology, as part of a course called Elementary School Science.
