This NEW collection consists of six lessons designed to help students construct an explanation of the geologic time scale based on personal connections, science concepts that include Superposition and index fossils, and nature of science ideas. A diversity of scientists and geological sites are highlighted in the lessons along with Shape of Life videos. 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.

Your students will ROCK these lessons!
