Product Description
This lesson teaches students about radiometric dating and about how this provides evidence for evolution. The lesson starts with a brief introduction to what radiometric dating is and a few molecules we use to do radiometric dating. Students then do a lab activity in which they use coins, black and white chips, or dice inside of a box to show how half lives work. After the lab, they use their new knowledge and a visual aid to complete a chart of half-lives and parent:daughter isotope ratios. Lastly, they use the two charts they have created to complete radiometric problems themselves. These math problems come with a scaffold that contains directions so all students should be able to easily complete them.

Zip file contains: 1.Powerpoint 2.PDF, to guarantee formatting and for easy printing, 3.Word document, to make it easier to edit.
Document is a conglomeration of my original material and material from other sources. I have made a good-faith effort to include everything non-original in the free preview download. Everything save the lab and instructions are my original material. Price reflects this.
