Save time and energy with this ⭐FREE⭐ HALF LIFE WORKSHEET! This set includes 2 worksheets that cover basic half-life calculations and graphing. Use as a homework assignment, end of lesson assessment, or as part of a station activity. I have included the answer key for easy grading. Need a digital
This double sided worksheet covers the basics of radioactive decay & half-life. I use this at the end of the topic to check student understanding, or as a revision resource prior to exams. The first page includes questions on:Alpha, Beta, Gamma radiation sources.What is radioactive decay and hal
Created by Robert DeMarco. This worksheet allows students to practice skills needed to work with half life and radioactive dating on the NYS Earth Science Regents examination. Uses the Earth Science Reference Tables and knowledge provided by the teacher.

These scaffolded Radioactive Decay Cornell Doodle Notes combine two effective note-taking strategies and can be used to introduce the concepts of radioactivity and half-life, and the three types of radioactive decay (alpha, beta, and gamma). Students will learn what the word radioactive means, why a

Two Complete Lessons in One! This resource includes an honors level lesson and a standard level lesson! There are two main concepts included in this lesson; half-life and the decay series. Students should understand that the decay of a radioisotope goes through a series of transmutations – usually b
This product includes two versions of my M&M half-life laboratory activity. One version is a more traditional Earth Science radioactive dating lab. The other is slightly more advanced Physics inquiry based lab that requires the use of a graphing calculator, like the TI-83 or TI-84. Both versions
This product is a lab I created for my high school Physical Science students. This lab gives students an understanding of half-life and radioactivity by using pennies to model radioactive decay. The lab has students put their data into a data table, average and graph their results, analyze their d
This lab is designed to augment one of the terrific physics and chemistry demos provided by the PhET Interactive Simulations Internet site of the University of Colorado at Boulder (https://phet.colorado.edu/). The Radioactive Dating Game introduces the concept of radioactive decay and its use in dat
In this card sort activity kids solve a puzzle of how one element (Uranium 238) transforms through a series of steps into 13 other isotopes before becoming a stable form of lead. Once kids become proficient, a second sequence is available for them to work through. If you study radiometric dating, th
In this activity, students will learn how radioactive decay proceeds, and how to interpret data from isotopes found in rocks. A set of dice will represent a population of decaying atoms, and as students roll and remove dice from the parent population, they will see that as the parent population dec
Easy to use one page brochure style foldables covering radioactive decay and radioactive dating.
Students will fill in definitions for radioactive decay, learn how it is used and learn about the five difference decay emissions. Alpha emission, beta emission, electron capture, gama emission and pos

(such as carbon-14 dating), and How is half-life decay?Question Exploration Routine is an instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by ca
This is a great lab to reinforce the topic of radioactive decay or half life. All you need is 100 pennies and a lab bin for each group of four students. Each student in the group is responsible for doing their part of the lab: 1 shaker, 1 counter, 1 recorder, 1 keeper of stable pennies. Check it out
In this easy to set-up half-life lab, students engage in a simulation that models the exponential decay of a radioactive element through M&Ms! It is a great first-day lab for a radioactivity unit, or simply to introduce the concept of a half-life. This resource is completely editable and contain
