I walked over to the platform that will soon take me back to the Paleozoic Era to study the ancient animals that lived in that time I was suppose to take notes about the behavior of an animal in each period of the Paleozoic Era because the Paleozoic Era was known for the first organisms that could think. I already went over all my notes that I had to study before the my journey back to the Paleozoic Era but I went over them in my head again,the Paleozoic Era started about 544 million years ago and ended about 250 million years ago.There were six periods in the Paleozoic Era- Cambrian,Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Carboniferous,BZZZZ, a loud buzzer stopped my train of thought. It was time to go back to the Paleozoic Era. I walked up on the platform the instructors asked me if I was
ready or not . I said I was ready. The scientists hit a large button and almost
immediately after the scientist hit the button a soft buzz came that gradually
got louder, then my vision blurred than the room went dark.
544 MILLION YEARS AGO,DAY 1,
I have made it to Cambrian time it is my first day here and i have 4 days to
find the trilobite that I need to take study. It is mostly water and it is cold
I found a dry piece of land to sleep on tonight, I will start my search to find
the trilobite tomorrow.
544 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 2,
I didn't sleep much last night but i am ready to find the trilobite and start
my next journey to Ordovician.
I will start to head east toward the rising sun and at the end of the day I will
head west where the sun sets and back to my camp.
I have walked in ankle deep water for almost an hour and I have finally came upon
a organism but not a Trilobite so I have to keep looking.
I have walked for another 2 hours and I have seen many organisms but not a
Trilobite. About an half an hour later I started to head back to camp when I
stumbled upon a trilobite I reached for my net that was attached to my backpack
and scooped it up and put into the container my journey in the Cambrian period
was finished. My vision the blurred and the world went black.
488 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 1,
I just finished my journey in Cambrian Time and I Just landed in the
Ordovician period and my new assignment is to find a primitive fish which I
think will be easier than the trilobite. The environment is about the same as
the Cambrian period but it has more land than Cambrian. I will start my search
for the primitive fish in the morning.
488 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 2,
I woke up in a few hours ago and started my journey and as I expected the
primitive fish was very easy to find and I found it in a matter of
443 TO 416 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 1,
I am now in the Silurian Period the Silurian period reminds me over the
weather in at home in Nebraska because it will be sunny for an than be dark and
cloudy the next hour. In this journey I will be searching for a jaw-less fish and
I don't know what the weather will be like tomorrow or in the next hour so I
want to see if I can find the fish so I can move on to the next assignment .
I have been walking for about 30 minutes and dark clouds are coming from the west
and coming straight toward me so I turned around and made my way back to
443 TO 416 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 2,
It rain all night long and in the morning so after the rain stopped I started
my search again and about 30 minutes into the search I found the jawless
419 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 1,
I am now in the Devonian Period and the Devonian Period is the first time the
world had real dirt that is a reddish color and plants are growing all around.
My assignment was to find a zosterophylls plant which Is Surprisingly landed on
when I came to the Devonian Period. So I am on to the next period.
359 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 1,
I just landed in the Carboniferous Period and the dirt as a little bit of
coal in it that makes it a darker color and it is very warm here.
I just started my journey to find a bryozoans that live in shallow waters and I
just found one.
299 MILLION YEARS AGO, DAY 1,
I am now in the Permian Period and it is very dry and it has one super continent .
In my last assignment I will be trying to find an Odonata which is
an insect. And I will start my search tomorrow.
I have been walking for hours and I can't find a Odonata, so I decided to sit in
the brush and rest for awhile. As I was sitting down a Odonata flew by me and I
caught it in my net and the world went black.
June 14, 2022,
I am back at the lab and I am finished with my journey and my assignment. And
now I am ready to start my new journey and assignment.. To be continued.
