Nuclear Decay: Red Licorice Activity
Students explore nuclear decay and half-life with red licorice in this consumable lab. This is a great activity to introduce the nuclear unit and allow students to explore half-life. In addition, students practice graphing their data.
This activity is extremely easy to set up and self explanatory! Each student group only needs one strand of licorice, a ruler and a knife. How simple!
This is a perfect activity to hand over to your students and allow them to discover independently as you monitor!
Feel free to ask me any questions about the lab! I'm happy to help!
