Fossils and Radioactive Dating - PowerPoint & Handouts.
Our pal the wooly mammoth is dead, but for how long? Students learn about radioactive dating and observe how radioactive decay helps to estimate the age of fossils as they create a wooly mammoth of their own, help him to meet his untimely demise, and then demonstrate radioactive decay in a short mini-lab.
