Product Description
In this student self-guided Earth Science activity students will work their way through the different techniques used in Relative Dating.

Students will first gain an understanding of what relative dating is by solving a puzzle of "which came first?". Students will define and use the word strata often. Students will learn the following types of Relative Dating techniques: Law of Superposition, Index Fossils, Cross-Cutting, unconformities, disconformities, angular unconformities, and nonconformities. Students will get practice using these techniques multiple times by numbering rock strata in proper sequential order. There is room for student debate in this assignment as well so working in partnerships is recommended. This lesson goes along with the website http://earthscience.xyz/RealtiveAbsoluteDating
