Unit 8.2: Fossils, Rocks, and Change

In this unit, students begin to draw back the curtain of time and get a peek at what Michigan used to look like, not just hundreds years ago, but back into deep time, millions to billions of years in the past. They discover the ecosystems which form the backdrop of our lives are not constant; they have undergone radical changes over the course of time. Students find and follow the trail of evidence hidden beneath our very feet to describe how Michigan has changed drastically over the course of geologic time..
