Relative dating interactive

PALEONTOLOGY, AND in particular the study of dinosaurs, is an exciting topic to people of all ages.Although most attention in today's world focuses on dinosaurs and why they became extinct, the world of paleontology includes many other interesting organisms which tell us about Earth's past history.If certain fossils are typically found only in a particular rock unit and are found in many places worldwide, they may be useful as index or guide fossils in determining the age of undated strata.

Objectives: When you complete this activity, you will be able to: (1) sequence information using items which overlap specific sets; (2) relate sequencing to the Law of Superposition; and (3) show how fossils can be used to give relative dates to rock layers.

The fossils represented by the letters on this card are "younger" than the "T" or "C" fossils on the "TC" card which represents fossils in the oldest rock layer.

Sequence the remaining cards by using the same process.

In this activity, students begin a sequencing activity with familiar items — letters written on cards.

Once they are able to manipulate the cards into the correct sequence, they are asked to do a similar sequencing activity using fossil pictures printed on "rock layer" cards.

However, "relative" dating or time can be an easy concept for students to learn. In this activity, students begin a sequencing activity with familiar items — letters written on cards. Once they are able to manipulate the cards into the correct sequence, they are asked to do a similar sequencing activity using fossil pictures printed.

The icons are interactive at the bottom of the page a nail with a tag and a magnifying glass, the computer, a chisel and a specimen collection box. The dig site number is displayed at the top so students can keep track of which site they are using. The worksheet provides the background, procedure and data tables from each.

Hi, I'm Sterling Nesbitt, a paleontologist! I study the fossilized bones of dinosaurs and their reptilian ancestors to learn what life was like millions of years ago. Fossilized bones of a dinosaur, surrounded by sediment, back in the lab. Sterling left and Nathan Smith excavate a new dinosaur in New Mexico. SEDIMENTARY.
