Artifact Ages - Radiometric Dating Simulation - Super Value Kit
An archeological site in Flinnlandia was recently excavated and ancient artifacts were recovered! Now it's time for your students to become “real-world” scientists, determine the age of the artifacts, and see how long ago this civilization lived. Stu...
Carbon Dating Activity - Super Value Puzzle
Find out how archeologists reconstruct the ancient history of the Earth using radiocarbon dating to determine the age of artifacts—everything from nutshells to parchment maps! Students “piece together” the process of carbon-14 dating by arranging a s...
Characteristics of Nuclear Radiation - Super Value Laboratory Kit
Alpha, beta, and gamma radiation are quite different in terms of their composition and properties. Different types of nuclear radiation require different types of shielding to protect workers from its harmful effects. Radiation protection comes from ...
Introduction to Radioactivity and Half-life Experiment Kit
Radioactivity and half-life are sometimes difficult for students to understand. With this activity your students will readily grasp the general concepts of radioactivity and half-life determination. Using reusable, simulated plastic radioactive atoms...
Nuclear Shielding - Super Value Kit
The most comprehensive radioactivity shielding kit available! Using a safe, low-level radioactive source and radiation monitor, students determine the shielding effectiveness of a wide range of materials. Students will quickly recognize the differenc...
Radioactive Decay Cards - Super Value Game
Nuclear stability and radioactive decay are important concepts to understanding nuclear chemistry, the size of the nucleus, and the energy that holds it together. In this engaging activity, students will determine the natural decay of uranium-238 to ...
Radioactivity Half-Life Simulation - Super Value Laboratory Kit
Students model the process of radioactive decay by studying the “decay curves” for a variety of multi-sided dice. Radioactive decay is a spontaneous and completely random process. The probability that a specific atom will decay after a certain period...
