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...
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...
