About the Lesson
In this lesson, students will analyze fossil characteristics and similarities between organisms to determine relative dating of fossils.
As a result, students will:
- Describe how the chronological order of fossilized organisms can provide evidence for evolution.
- Identify the similarities between organisms to determine relative dating of fossils.
