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 8th grade teachers because the standards covered are heavily 8th grade science standards. 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 bring your students to the Aquarium to participate in our Earth History classroom program, we recommend completing the following activities before your visit. Those activities include: Geologic Time Scale, Rock Cycles and Layers and Fossil Gap
