We discussed the basics of evolution and natural selection and the classification of life. Keep these things in mind as we move through the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras.
We started our geologic timeline project today. This is a fun one that has students model the history of the Earth and label important points in the development of life on Earth.
We are doing a 3-day robotics unit using the Space Challenge Mission Mat. See the LEGO Robotics tab for the tutorials that we used during our main unit. Below is an example of the missions to program.
We are looking at Wegener's early continental drift hypothesis and the evidence that finally proved that his ideas were for the most part correct: the continents were moving. In this activity, we graph ocean floor depth data and see features emerge on the ocean floor.
