Extinction of species is common; most of relative age dating of rocks activity species that have lived on the earth no longer exist.
Students discover principles, from real and simulated examples, used for relative age-dating of rocks and geologic events.
About the author Beth Geiger Beth Geiger is a geologist-turned science writer.
Once students begin to grasp "relative" dating, they can extend their knowledge of geologic time by exploring radiometric dating and developing a timeline of Earth's history.

Right, each team must determine the number of millions of years represented by the set that they themselves turned over, PLUS the number of millions of years represented by the set that another team turned over.
Students create a descriptive name for the principle.
