Earth's History

For Teachers 7th
Seventh graders study the law of superposition by creating models of fossils in layers of rock. They examine how fossils are usually found in sedimentary rock which leads to the study of geologic history in those rocks.
Lesson Planet

Be a "Fossil Detective" an Effective Tool in Earth Science Education

For Teachers 4th - 7th
Pupils examine the geological time scale: the Earth is ancient; time can be divided into periods based on its fossil content.

Geologic History PowerPoint Follow Sheet-The Rules of the Game

For Students 8th - 10th
In this geologic history worksheet, students answer questions about the earth's history, about dating fossils, about layers of rocks and about unconformity.
Lesson Planet

Stratigraphy and Cross-dating

For Teachers 7th - 8th
Students use activity sheet to interpret archaeological strata using the law of superposition and apply cross-dating to determine approximate age of other artifacts based on information given on activity sheet.
Lesson Planet

Rules of the Game

For Students 6th - 8th
In this rules of the game instructional activity, middle schoolers create a foldable demonstrating the laws of superposition and the principle of folding. Students will answer questions as it relates to rock layers and the principle of...
Lesson Planet

What's Up?

For Teachers 7th - 12th
Students are introduced to the concept of relative dating. They determine the age sequence of geological events by analyzing a cross section. They identify geological principles as well.
