Geologic Time Scale Review Questions

$3.00

Description

Do your students need practice for standardized tests? Do you need a way for students to review content while also checking for accuracy? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this geologic time scale questions resource is for you.

 

I created this no prep, ready-to-use resource to help teachers, parents, and students by providing simple yet comprehensive practice on a variety of topics related to the Geologic Time Scale. The questions are designed to be rigorous and require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the content being presented.

 

Let’s get our students thinking, reading, and reviewing vocabulary with this engaging practice that is compatible with multiple styles of teaching. Your purchase includes both PDF and digital copies that are perfect for pre-reading, homework and review, or even sending to absent students.

 

Topics covered in this resource include:

  • eons, eras, periods, and epochs
  • major events of each
  • relative dating vs. absolute dating

 

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. It provides a variety of practice covering the mentioned topics.

 

How Can I Use this Resource?

  • Emergency Sub Plans
  • An independent work station in a set of stations
  • Differentiation – Assign this practice as reteaching for students who have yet to show mastery.
  • Homework
  • Creation of Independent Work Packet for students who are not able to be present for direct instruction.
  • Extension activity for early finishers or for students who show a special interest in the topic

NGSS STANDARDS COVERED BY THIS GEOLOGIC TIME SCALE REVIEW QUESTIONS:

NGSSMS-ESS2-3
Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions. Examples of data include similarities of rock and fossil types on different continents, the shapes of the continents (including continental shelves), and the locations of ocean structures (such as ridges, fracture zones, and trenches). Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed.
NGSSMS-ESS2-2
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
