Description:

This activity uses simplified paleontological and stratigraphic data. Students receive instructions, basic location map, biostratigraphic range charts. Involves cutting out section data in columns, constructing a cross-section, also plotting biostratigraphic data according to time. This exercise develops understanding of the time-stratigraphic significance of graptolites, the sedimentologic and paleoecologic interpretations of environment of deposition and water depth. The activity connects to stratigraphy, sedimentology and obliquely to structural geology.
