These processes result in All of these processes confuse the stratigraphic record.

In many cases, however, it is possible to reconstruct the original sequence of strata so that they can be used for relative dating.

PALEONTOLOGY, AND in particular the study of dinosaurs, is an exciting topic to people of all ages.

Although most attention in today's world focuses on dinosaurs and why they became extinct, the world of paleontology includes many other interesting organisms which tell us about Earth's past history.

In the past, relative dating methods often were the only ones available to paleoanthropologists.

As a result, it was difficult to chronologically compare fossils from different parts of the world.

In this activity, students begin a sequencing activity with familiar items — letters written on cards.

Once they are able to manipulate the cards into the correct sequence, they are asked to do a similar sequencing activity using fossil pictures printed on "rock layer" cards.

For instance, if we find a fossil bone below the strata 3 rock level shown above, we assume that the animal most likely lived at a time before that layer was formed.
