HOW WE DATE THE AGE OF

ROCKS AND FOSSILS

CLUE 1

ROW VALUE
200 POINTS


Response 1

PRODUCED WHEN SEDIMENTS

FILL IN A CAVITY MADE WHEN

AN OBJECT DECAYED

CAST

PROCESS THAT USES THE

PROPERTIES OF ATOMS IN

ROCKS AND OTHER OBJECTS

TO DETERMINE THEIR AGES

ABSOLUTE DATING

TIME IT TAKES FOR HALF OF

AN ISOTOPE'S ATOMS TO

DECAY

HALF-LIFE

THE FIRST STEP OF THE

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

WHAT IS IDENTIFY THE

PROBLEM

A FOSSIL MAY TELL A

GEOLOGIST WHEN, WHERE,

AND HOW AN ORGANISM LIVED

TRUE

ANY FOSSIL CAN BE DATED BY

THE AMOUNT OF CARBON-14 IT

CONTAINS TRUE/FALSE

FALSE - C-14 IS TOO

SHORT LIVED

CLUE 2

ROW VALUE
400 POINTS


Response 2

CAVITY IN ROCK MADE WHEN

AN ORGANISM DECAYED

MOLD

METHOD BY WHICH A

GEOLOGIST CAN CALCULATE

THE ABSOLUTE AGE OF THE

ROCK BY KNOWING THE

HALF-LIFE OF AN ISOTOPE

RADIOMETRIC DATING

FOSSIL OF THIN LAYER OF

CARBON ATOMS AND

MOLECULES

WHAT IS CARBON FILM

OR CARBONACEOUS FILM

THE SECOND STEP OF THE

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

WHAT IS FORM A

HYPOTHESIS

A PERMINERALIZED BONE IS

COMPOSED OF CALCIUM

FALSE - A MINERAL

SUCH AS QUARTZ THAT

AFTER ONE HALF-LIFE, THIS IS

THE AMOUNT OF PARENT

MATERIAL REMAINING

WHAT IS ONE HALF THE

ORIGINAL AMOUNT

CLUE 3

ROW VALUE
600 POINTS


Response 3

PRINCIPLE THAT EARTH'S

PROCESSES OCCURRING

TODAY ARE SIMILAR TO

THOSE THAT OCCURRED IN

THE PAST

UNIFORMITARIANISM

PROCESS THAT OCCURS WHEN

THE NUMBER OF PROTONS IN

AN ATOM IS CHANGED AND A

NEW ELEMENT IS FORMED

RADIOACTIVE DECAY

FORMED WHEN ORIGINAL

MATERIALS IN SKELETAL

REMAINS ARE REPLACED BY

MINERALS

PERMINERALIZED

REMAINS

THE THIRD STEP IN THE

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

WHAT IS TEST THE

HYPOTHESIS

THE SOFT PARTS OF

ORGANISMS ARE MOST LIKELY

TO BECOME FOSSILS

FALSE - THE HARD

PARTS

AFTER 2 HALF-LIVES, THIS IS

THE AMOUNT OF DAUGHTER

PRODUCT COMPARED TO THE

ORIGINAL AMOUNT OF PARENT

PRODUCT

WHAT IS

THREE-FOURTHS

Response 4

STATES THAT IN A SEQUENCE

OF UNDISTURBED ROCKS, THE

OLDEST ROCKS ARE ON THE

BOTTOM AND THE YOUNGER

ARE LOCATED THE TOP

PRINCIPLE OF

SUPERPOSITION

REMAINS, IMPRINTS, OR

TRACES OF ONCE-LIVING

THE FOURTH STEP IN THE

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

WHAT IS OBSERVE THE

TEST FOR RESULTS

PRESERVED ANIMAL TRACKS

ARE TRACE FOSSILS

TRUE

THE NUMBER OF HALF-LIVES A

SUBSTANCE WOULD THROUGH

BEFORE ONLY 1/16 OF THE

PARENT PRODUCT REMAINED
