  191.   TRB 4:4 - Investigation 3 - Examining Your Fossil
...dentify fossils by examining them with a hand lens to look at their different characteristics. Each of the fossils they made and discussed in Investigation Two can be examined by hand lenses. Examining fossils helps us learn about Earth's history. They help make inferences about past life, climate, geology, and environments. Scientists are able to construct geologic time scales when they find fossils. They are used to determine the time period an unknown rock layer was deposited. Certain fossils have been found to occur only in specific layers of rock. Fossils that have this characteristic are called index fossils. Whe...

  193.   Geological Features: How Weathering & Erosion Help Create Landforms
Burke Becklund Sheena Tuft Fall 2004 Note: Lesson plan ideas and background information were adapted from the Utah Education Network to ensure accuracy and appropriate content and concepts for the fifth grade level. Geological Features: How Weathering & Erosion Help Create Landforms Abstract: Throughout this lesson students will learn how the Earth's surface changes resulting in geological features and landforms. Students will do a read-a-loud on Thomas Locker's Mountain Dance. Then students will do a KWL on the board. Students will be...

Example of historical figures: Cleopatra Napoleon Charlemagne Caesar Christopher Columbus Queen Elizabeth Lucy (Australopithecus-ancient human) *You can use any type of "date" beside historical figures. Other idea-eras in geological time, specific species (dating when they first appeared in the fossil record), etc. Use your imagination.

...m out. It should be in a way that 'tells a story.' For example, you could put lots of igneous rocks in the middle representing a volcano or a pluton, surrounded by some sedimentary rocks representing rivers. Depending on the level of the students, you can make the grid more or less complex. MAKING GEOLOGIC MAPS Heather Goss University of Maine, NSF GK-12 Fellow (2005) Grades 3-4 Could be made more complex and work for any grade. Time: 40 - 60 minutes Materials: Powerpoint slides: rock cycle animation, and photo examples of what a 'rock outcrop' is. Lots of rocks for sorting at beginning: igneous pile, sedimentary pile...

  200.   Rock Discovery
...lesson, students should understand the processes that form the three main types of rock, as well as identify characteristics of some common rocks. Rocks are combinations of minerals found naturally on or in Earth. Rocks record the history of Earth in their structure. Earth materials can change over time from one form to another. Rocks can be identified by properties such as color, crystal size or texture, banding patterns, presence of pores, and other characteristics. Color is an easy one for students but not all that helpful. The size and shape of the particles that make up rock or lack of them, are more meaningful. C...
