The Toilet Paper Timeline

I was explaining to my daughter that the novel I was currently reading was set in 1000 A.D., which she understood. What she didn’t have however, was an overall understanding of human time on the Earth and Earth time iteself. So we decided to do some Googling.

One of the sites we found was The Toilet Paper Timeline, in which students from The Worsley School in Alberta, Canada created a timeline using a role of toilet paper and a long hallway.

Check it out. It’s quite a revealing visual representation of just how little time we humans have been around!
