The objective of this folding graphic organizer is to help students decipher the characteristics of Alpha, Beta and Gamma Decay as they delve into Nuclear Chemistry. Students will identify types of Nuclear Decay Reactions and Characteristics of the Decay Processes, including energy emissions, parent-daughter nuclei comparisons, types of particles involved, etc.
This activity would be appropriate for homework, an end-of-topic activity, or even a quick assessment.
There are two versions of this file included.
