###### Question details

To the Mesozoic Era

**To the Mesozoic Era**

Now, let’s keep going. This time the goal will be to travel back
to the beginning of the Neogene Period, just before the Quaternary
Period. **Use your GTS to determine how many km to travel to
reach where the Neogene Period begins**, which is also where
the Miocene Epoch begins. **Continue tracing your route
point-to-point, and try to stay as close as possible to the road.
Use a map scale bar resolution of 500 m to 1 km, but no larger or
smaller.**

**Question 5** (1 point)

**How many km did you travel in total from the GGB to
reach the start of the Neogene Period? Round to two significant
digits.**

**Question 6** (1 point)

**At a scale bar resolution of 500 m - 1 km, at the
beginning of the Neogene Period along your traced route, what is
the closest town or municipality?**

**Question 7** (1 point)

**Now zoom out to a scale bar of 5 km and look at the road
so far.** Your path of points won’t look exactly like this
but it should be fairly similar:

Next stop: the beginning of the Paleogene Period, which also
begins the Cenozoic Era in which we continue to live today. At that
time-point the Mesozoic Era ended, and along with it the Cretaceous
Period, about 70% of biodiversity on Earth, and all dinosaurs but a
few birds. **Extend your distance trace along the route until
you reach the end of the Mesozoic Era.**

**How many km did you travel in total from the GGB to
reach the end of the Mesozoic Era? Round to two significant
digits.**

**Question 8** (1 point)

**At a scale-bar resolution of 2 km, at the end of the
Cretaceous Period along your traced route, what is the closest
real-world town or municipality?**

**Question 9** (1 point)

The Mesozoic Era extends back through the Cretaceous, Jurassic
& Triassic Periods to 252 mya. **Continue your trip
through these periods along your route, stopping at the beginnings
of the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic Periods. For this leg of
the trip, use a 5 km scale bar.**

**How many km did you travel in total from the GGB to
reach the beginning of the Cretaceous Period? Round to three (3)
significant digits.**
