Complete the following activites and labs. Fill out the online study guides and save to your files. An arrow indicates a study guide to be filled out. A sign shows those activites that will give you a basic understanding of the concepts. Do these first if you are having difficulty. Document your work in your science website portfolio. Take all assessments.
Geology Module III - Historical Geology
Module III Formative PRE-Assessment
This assessment will check your prior knowlege. It will not be graded but should give you an idea of which parts of Module VIII you should spend the most time on.
Assessments - it's time to take a test! Get your summative assessment from your teacher!!

I am done with Module III when ...
I can recognize a real fossil from a synthetic fossil or organic material.
I can demonstrate an understanding of Geologic Time by analyzing a time scale chart.
I can observe characteristics of common index fossils to draw conclusions as to the age of rock from which they were found.
I can demonstrate a basic understanding of how fossils formed.
I can draw conclusions from the fossil record to better understand life in the past.
I can predict future geological and biological trends by observing events of the past.
