1 Utah’s Geology & the History of the Earth Utah’s Geologic Past: Proterozoic to Mesozoic
2 Bell Activity Your words are “remnant” & “fossil fuels” This is a no gum class. Please dispose of it properly!Bell ActivityYour words are “remnant” & “fossil fuels”Find the word on your green study guide and complete the following information for the word.Find the definition using a glossary.Use your own knowledge and experience to complete the rest of the definition.Where should your backpack be?How the Earth was Made
3 Does your work look something like this? word: remnantMy Understanding:Definition:Draw a picture of it:Sentence:Synonym/ Example:Antonym/Non-Example:
4 Does your work look something like this? word: remnantMy Understanding:Definition: remaining; leftover; a traceDraw a picture of it:Sentence: Fossils, such as Utahraptor’sskeleton, are a remnant from Utah’sgeologic past.Synonym/ Example: leftover, remains; fossilAntonym/Non-Example: whole; modern, current
5 Does your work look something like this? word: fossil fuelMy Understanding:Definition:Draw a picture of it:Sentence:Synonym/ Example:Antonym/Non-Example:
6 Does your work look something like this? word: fossil fuelMy Understanding:Definition: fuel such as oil, coal, orDraw a picture of it:natural gas that was formed from livingmatter of a previous geologic time.Sentence: Utah’s fossil fuel resourcesinclude coal, oil shale, and natural gas,which boost our economy.Synonym/ Example: coal, oil, natural gasAntonym/Non-Example: solar power, wind
7 Today we will be learning about… Social Studies Objective – We will understand that the Earth, and Utah, has changed a lot in the past.Behavior Objective – Courtesy & Respect: Be polite to those around you. Respect others and yourself.Language Objective –We will be able to summarize what a past era was like in writing.Explain how natural forces shape the living environment and landscape.Investigate how natural forces shape the local environments.Predict how natural forces affect environments; e.g., earthquakes, volcanic action, mudslides, flooding, erosion.
8 Percentage of Time: Deep time demonstration Let’s see how much of Earth’s geologic history was taken up by this eon.If we converted the whole history of the earth into a timeline 5 feet long, how much of line would the Proterozoic Eon take up. (Math!!! 60 inches x 17.5% = _______ inches)Hadean 17.5%Archaen 28.5%Proterozoic 42%Paleozoic 7%Mesozoic 4%Cenozoic 1%10.5 inches ~10.5”17.1 inches ~17”25.2 inches ~25”4.2 inches ~4”2.4 inches ~2.5”0.6 inches ~0.5”
9 PostersMost cool events important or facts written in completesentencespicture3+ cool living What isorganisms happening in and a picture Utah?Of themAs long as your poster has all the information it should, you can design it how you want.For those of us who like a little guidance, here is what your first poster might look like…
10 Proterozoic EonWe will watch a short video about the eon, then read a short description of it, and finally, talk about what happened in Utah at this time.
12 Let’s work Work with your table group to fill out the organizer. Most cool events important or facts written in completesentencespicture3+ cool living What isorganisms happening in and a picture Utah?Of themWork with your table group to fill out the organizer.What do we remember about the Proterozoic time?
14 How the Earth Was MadeWe are going to watch some short clips from the series “How the Earth Was Made”.Compare what they say with what you learned about each time period.If necessary, add some more details to your descriptions.If you are not paying attention, there will be a quiz at the end of the clips.
