Index Fossils: Introduction   TSWBAT

1.View streaming video segments from Discovery Education about the different organisms that dominated each era in Earth History and the changes that took place in Earth's environment and then take notes on new information learned in science journal

2.  Read Fossils, Rocks, and Time p.76-80 Earth History Resources book and answer Think Questions in Science Journal to better understand how fossils help determine the age and information about a period in Earth's History

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.8

32. Fossil Identification

Index Fossils: Identification-2 TSWBAT
1.Identify Index fossils as fossils that are found all over the world and were only found for a relatively short period of time in Earth History

2. Identify the scientific name and age of index fossils

3. Go over p. 28. Relative Ages of Rocks / Evolution and Geologic Time to understand how the ages of rocks are determined and how organisms changed over time& p. 29  Early Earth History/Middle and Recent Earth History to review the events that happened in the Palezoic- Cenozoic Eras &p. 30 Fossils/Extinction of Dinosaurs to understand the theory of how the dinosaurs became extinct

1/15

Index Fossils: Correlation TSWBAT
1.Identify Index fossils as fossils that are found all over the world and were only found for a relatively short period of time in Earth History

3. Line up rock layers according to like Index Fossils and correlate the ages of the rock layers and identify their time period

3. Answer the correlation questions of help understand the sequence of the rock layers and the environments that the different organisms lived in
NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.8

33. Theory of Plate Tectonics/Before Pangaea, Rodina

 

Science Current Event (Due Friday)

Read Text p. 294-315 p. 33. Theory of Plate Tectonics/Before Pangaea, Rodina
 

1/16

Index Fossil Reading TSWBAT

1. Reading: A Fossil Primer p.83-88 Earth History Resources book to better understand what an Index Fossil is and how they are used

2. Complete p. 34.Thinking About Index Fossils to better understand the work of the early paleontologists

3.Reading: Floating on Prehistoric Sea p.81-82 Earth History Resources book to better understand how fossils form in rocks and how the layers and the fossils help scientists to learn about the environments and how the Earth has changed.
