An Era is a major division of geologic time. Scientist recognize four major eras:
Today you will research an era and complete a graphic organizer for the era. If you finish early, begin creating a Prezi or powerpoint for your era. Make sure to include pictures and to save properly.

Task 2: 7 Global Climate Change –Putting it all Together
Although scientists do not know what the future of climate change will be like, we do know about several consequences of a warmer planet.
QUESTION A: Please use the links below to find and describe 3 problems associated with climate change: Links can be found at http://www.argusscience.wordpress.com.
QUESTION B: We have learned a lot about the many causes of climate change, both natural and human caused. However, many people think that we know everything about our climate and that we should not spend very much money on research. What would be your response?
QUESTION C: Also, many people feel they need to “take a side” for or against climate change. Some people say humans are the ONLY things responsible for climate change. Others say that humans and our actions do not have ANY effect on the Earth.
Are either of these viewpoints totally true? What might be a more appropriate viewpoint, based on what we have learned in this investigation?
Task 3: Take practice quiz at the link below to help review for the final:

For extra credit, pretend you just lived through one of the earthquakes that you studied. Write a narrative describing your experience (much like the one we read from the Kentucky farmer yesterday). Make sure to demonstrate that you have read about the earthquake. Get creative – use dilect from the time/place and have your narrative reflect the time period (Example: You could have been watching a specific T.V. show from the 60s if the earthquake was in the 60s or you could use some Spanish if the earthquake was in a Spanish speaking country.)
