The Formation of Seamounts
The relative dating activity allows you to practice relatively dating of volcanic features. After seeing the relative dating lesson you will have the tools necessary to identify which volcanic features are relatively older than others. This object includes 10 images of different volcanic stages of seamount formation.
Print out the images and put the pictures in the correct order from youngest (most recently formed) to oldest (formed the longest ago). The order of the slides in the acitivy is the correct order from youngest to oldest so try mixing up the images first and then puting them back in the correct order.
