Get this as part of a bundle:
  1. Looking for engaging, rigorous, student-centered activities to teach your students about radioactivity, nuclear fission and fusion, and half-life? This bundle has everything you need to teach a unit on nuclear chemistry including doodle notes, practice worksheets, a modeling activity, a gallery walk
Product Description
This resource is also part of the Nuclear Chemistry Bundle!

This Visual of Nuclear Decay worksheet is a great introductory activity to half life! Students follow directions on the worksheet to visually reduce a "sample" by half 10 times in a row...and they keep track of the "amount" of the sample at these incremental times...then they graph the data and learn the shape of a half-life graph (exponential decay). They answer questions about the shape of the graph and the concept of half-life, and they conduct a little extra research into the technique of carbon dating and how this activity relates to it.
