5. Geologic TIme on the Web - Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan

  1. Give students the student handout and allow them time to preview the questions they need to find answers to on the web.
  2. Direct students to the “Understanding Geologic Time” website (http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/education/explorations/tours/geotime/gtpage1.html).
  3. Give students 40-50 minutes to navigate their way through the website and answer the questions. Students who finish early can proceed to the back side of the handout and explore UCMP’s online “Geology Wing” (http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/exhibit/geology.html).
  4. Collect the handouts when students are done.
