Product Description
Simulate the half life of radioactive materials using candies! Your students will be eager to participate in this tasty lab.

Included is a quick recap of radioactive decay as well as two different variations of the activity depending on the concept you are working towards..... Delicious Decay 1 focuses on the randomness of the decay and the inability to directly predict which atoms will decay into daughter isotopes. Delicious Decay 2 focuses instead on the precision and hammering home the fact that the amount of parent isotope never reaches 0% and the amount of daughter isotope never reaches 100%.

Both labs require students to graph their results and write a conclusion regarding their light bulb moments from the activity.
