This collection consists of six lesson plans designed to help students construct an explanation of the geologic time scale based on personal connections, science concepts and nature of science ideas. Students will enjoy the diversity of scientists and geologic sites in the Shape of Life videos. Scientists use a variety of methods and tools that illustrate innovative problem solving and engineering. A variety of modalities are engaged that encourage shared exploration with peers. Students go outside and observe the schoolyard, watch videos, create a “geologic site in a cup,” utilize technology for geologic time scale interpretations, work in small groups and participate in whole class discussions throughout the lessons.
Check these lessons out. You're students will ROCK!
