The South Carolina Aquarium, in partnership with teachers, has created this online curriculum for teachers to use with their students in the classroom. Our Earth History unit is geared toward 6th and 8th grade teachers and some high school classes because of the science standards covered. All the activities contain background information, procedures, materials list, standards addressed, assessments, curriculum extensions and a resource list. We hope teachers will enjoy this resource!
If you are a teacher planning to participate in our Earth History School Program, we recommend completing 3 activities before your program. Those activities include: Geologic Time Scale, Rock Cyles and Layers and Fossil Gap. The most important activity being Rock Cycles and Layers.
We have added at-home and virtual learning modifications to our recommended activities. Be sure to see how you can engage your students at-home and virtually with our activities!
