Earth and Life Science Quarter 1 – Module 13: Geologic Time Scale: Relative and Absolute Dating

This module covers the scientific principles that historical geologists used to describe the Earth’s past. This will also serve as a guide to the clues that were left on Earth, the different events, and the time it took these events to happen which are depicted in the geologic time scale.

In this module, you will be able to determine the different divisions that comprise the geologic time scale which uses the two methods of record: absolute and relative dating.

Senior High School (SHS) Earth and Life Science Self-Learning Module (SLM)

The module is composed of the:

  • Lesson 1: Geologic Time Scale: Relative and Absolute Dating

After going through this module, you are expected to:

  1. Name the divisions of the geologic time scale.
  2. Characterize each major and subdivisions in the geologic time scale.
  3. Describe how relative and absolute dating provide evidence of geologic history.
