Strand 1: Inquiry Process Concept 2, PO 5: Record observations, notes, sketches, questions, and ideas using tools such as journals, charts, graphs, and computers.Concept 3, PO 1: Interpret data that show a variety of possible relationships Concept 4, PO 2: Produce graphs that communicate data Concept 4, PO 3: Communicate results clearly and logically Concept 4, PO 4: Support conclusions with logical scientific arguments Strand 6: Earth and Space Science Concept 3, PO 4: Interpret a geologic time scale.Concept 3, PO 5: Distinguish between relative and absolute geologic dating techniques.
They will excavate a hypothetical archaeological site from their school yard, make observations, and write an interpretation of the history of the area based on the evidence they will excavate.
To facilitate the activity, the teacher will provide some introduction to absolute dating principles through the Half Life of M&M Worksheet.
Then in Phase 2 of the project, the teacher will provide the students with plastic bins each representing a different stratum of the archaeological site.
Using the absolute dating principles provided in Phase 1 of the lesson, students will make decisions of which artifacts to send to a lab for absolute dating.
Based on this information, they will learn how to relatively date associated artifacts.
They will interpret their archaeological site by writing an explanation of when each stratum and artifact was deposited in their site.Title: Relative Dating Powerpoint 1(No Transcript) 2(No Transcript) 3Trilobite 4(No Transcript) 5James Hutton- The first Geologist!6Time and Geology Sir Charles Lyell Image source edu/emuseum 7The Key to the Past 13(No Transcript) 14Cross-cutting Relationships disruptions in any rock sequence occurred after the youngest established event in the undisturbed sequence Ie.A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts 15(No Transcript) 16Trip Through Time 17(No Transcript) 18(No Transcript) 19Sedimentary Deposition 20(No Transcript) 21Intrusion 22Tilting Erosion 23Subsidence and New Marine Deposition 24Missing Formation 25Dike Event 26Erosion and Exposure 27Subsidence Deposition 28Fluvial Deposition 29Complex Subsurface Geology 30Contact Relations 31(No Transcript) 32(No Transcript) 33(No Transcript) Power is a leading presentation/slideshow sharing website.Whether your application is business, how-to, education, medicine, school, church, sales, marketing, online training or just for fun, Power is a great resource.And, best of all, most of its cool features are free and easy to use.
