Product Description
This activity allows students to ponder the pros and cons within the field of nuclear chemistry. Included are ten mini-posters (1 page each) that cover the following topics:
-Chernobyl accident
-Three Mile Island accident
-Fukushima accident
-Atomic Bomb of Hiroshima
-Atomic Bomb of Nagasaki
-Nuclear Power in Spacecraft
-Radioisotopes in Medicine
-Nuclear Submarines
-Carbon Dating
-Nuclear Power Plants

I set this up as a "gallery walk" around my classroom and have students take their answer sheet and silently walk around to read each poster and fill in their sheet.

Afterwards, we discuss reactions to the nuclear incidents and to the ways in which nuclear energy and radioactivity are used in technology important to our everyday lives.

This could work as part of a nuclear chemistry unit, or as a way to get the point across in a one or two-period activity.

Thanks for looking!
