Greetings Fellow Teachers!
This set of worksheets and hand outs helps students practice using geologic evidence to identify climates in the geologic history of an area.
Set of 6 student practice sheets with answer keys plus 2 reference sheets. I laminate mine to save on copies!
Daily warm ups or bell ringers
Packet for the substitute
Progressive whole group or small group instruction
Or use the reference materials and create your own questions!
Ohio State 8th Grade Standard: ESS: Evidence of the dynamic changes of Earth’s surface through time is found in the geologic record. Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. Earth history is based on observations of the geologic record and the understanding that processes observed at present day are similar to those that occurred in the past (uniformitarianism). There are different methods to determine relative and absolute age of some rock layers in the geologic record. Within a sequence of undisturbed sedimentary rocks, the oldest rocks are at the bottom (superposition). The geologic record can help identify past environmental and climate conditions.
