Standard 3240-05 Students will investigate changes in Earth's crust and climate. The process of obtaining radioactive dates from samples is also shown.
Evolution is the unifying principle in biology, as it provides an explanation for the overwhelming diversity of forms and function seen in life on Earth.
The distribution, morphology, and genetics of living populations all provide evidence for evolution, but the complete picture cannot be understood by the study of living population alone.
The origin of major new structures and body plans can be studied through the archive of evolution, the fossil record.
Fossils, traces of once living organisms, are found most commonly in layers of sedimentary rock.
The five categories included in the process are 75 students).
It is a great way to introduce or reinforce the concepts involved in radioactive decay.
Learn about different types of radiometric dating, such as carbon dating.
Understand how decay and half life work to enable radiometric dating.
Repeat this experiment until all of the pennies have been removed.
