Sequence the remaining cards by using the same process. Clams and oysters; many living species.

WHO'S ON FIRST? A RELATIVE DATING ACTIVITY MARSHA BARBER and DIANA SCHEIDLE BARTOS INTRODUCTION PALEONTOLOGY, AND in particular the study of dinosaurs, is an exciting.

When you finish, you should have a vertical stack of cards with the top card representing the youngest fossils of this rock sequence and the "TC" card at the bottom of the stack representing the oldest fossils. Comments required Please provide as much detail as possible about the abuse or offensive behavior you are reporting. On a larger scale, even between continents, fossil evidence can help in correlating rock layers. Fossils provide important evidence of how life and environmental conditions have changed. 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.

Students begin by categorizing cards of nonsense words, then move on to cards with pictures of fossils.

The Law of Superposition, which states that in an undisturbed horizontal sequence of rocks, the oldest rock layers will be on the bottom, with successively younger rocks on top of these, helps geologists correlate rock layers around the world. This would also mean that fossils found in the deepest layer of rocks in an area would represent the oldest forms of life in that particular rock formation. Time factors of millions and billions of years is difficult even for adults to comprehend.

Spread the cards with the nonsense syllables on the table and determine the correct sequence of the eight cards by comparing letters that are common to individual cards and, therefore, overlap. Many were large a few rare species were 5 feet in length ; crawling and swimming forms; extinct NAME:
