Experience Deep Time & Earliest Fossils

Download: Lesson Plan

Publisher: Published by Larry Flammer

Type: Activity

Grade Level: High School

Time Length: 45 minutes

Summary: Students gradually build a realistic sense of deep, geological time from familiar linear analogs, e.g. calendars and football fields. Students also learn to associate the earliest fossils of specific groups of vertebrates with the geologic time of their emergence, on the now-familiar scale of relative distances from their school. From this, students discover the pattern of gradual vertebrate emergence and how well it consistently fits vertebrate phylogeny.
