RELATIVE DATING (Student Activity) All of the fossils represented would be found in sedimentary rocks of marine origin. Figure 2-A gives some background information on the individual fossils. 2) The oldest rock layer is marked with the letter "M" in the lower left-hand corner.

Evaluate 15 min Day 2 , , none, computer optional 2 Students will utilize the group and class-wide timeline to define the 2 ways scientists can determine the age of an unknown object. Students will.

Relative Age Dating Lab Directions and Worksheet - Relative Relative age dating assumes that the lower layers in any particular cross section are older than the upper layers in that cross section (“the law of superposition”) and that an object cannot be older than the materials of which it is composed%(16). Learn about different types of radiometric dating, such as carbon dating. Understand how decay and half life work to enable radiometric dating. Play a game that tests your ability to match the percentage of the dating element that remains to the age of the object. Radiometric Dating Lab By Vicky Jordan Background: Relative dating gives an approximate age of something compared to some other event in history. Scientists can tell that the item is “older” or “younger” than certain events in time, but cannot give an exact age of the item. Relative dating is common when comparing layers of rocks in.

Click on the magnifying glass to go to the "Relative Age Assessment" - another chance to practice putting the layers in order. Earth Science Lab Relative Dating #2 - You can enter the order you think 20 different rock layers formed in, and then click "grade" to see how you did.

Activity Guidelines Page 6 Relative Age Dating 1. Relative dating – Using layers of rock to find out if one layer rock is older or younger than another layer of rock. This type of age dating does NOT give a specific numerical age like billion years old. 2. Principle of superposition – If you see a bunch of layers of rock on top of each other.

SCIN -- Relative Age Dating Lab. The geologic history revealed in Figure 4 is as follows: Layers G,C, A and F were deposited. A normal fault B cut layers G, C, A and F. A period of erosion followed which created an unconformity. F was completely eroded away except in the area where it had been down-faulted. H, D and I were deposited and finally, Fault E occurred.
