This PowerPoint presentations introduces students to the law of superposition which states that the oldest layers of rock will be on the bottom and the newest layers will be at the top. It asks students to make inferences about the age of fossils based on their position in the rock layers. This is a great mini-lesson to incorporate into a fossils unit because it requires students to practice their higher-order thinking skills and logical reasoning.
