How Old is Old? (And, How Much is a Million?)

Here is an interesting lesson on how old things are designed for young scientists. In it, learners compile a list of their birthdays, and the class puts them in sequential order from youngest to oldest. Then, they sequence 15 objects chosen by the teacher from youngest to oldest. The lesson serves as an introduction to the study of fossils, and other "old things" found in the Sonoran Desert.

I am a special eduction teacher at a High School in Texas. I teach 45 subjects in 7 periods. Without Lesson Planet, I would drown just in the preparation. Thanks Lesson Planet.
