Product Description

In this classic nuclear decay lab students will use Skittles to emulate the decay of several atoms. Each lab group is given a different isotope and will pour out Skittles and eat all those that have decayed (S pointing down). Students will count the remaining Skittles and create a data table and then relevant decay curve.

Materials needed: 1 large bag of Skittles is about 400 Skittles. I usually give each lab group a cup of 50 Skittles.

Please do not upload these to the internet, as students will find them and harm their learning and that of my students. If you would like me to write a customized lab for you, please email me. Thanks for looking.
