Carbon Dating Activity - Super Value Puzzle
 
Product Description

By: Bob Becker, Kirkwood H.S., Kirkwood, MO


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 set of story and picture tiles in a logical sequence to form a narrated storyboard. How are carbon-14 atoms produced? Why does the C-14/C-12 ratio decrease when an organism dies? What are the equations for solving half-life problems related to radioactive decay? Use this creative puzzle activity to help students learn the basic principles and procedures involved in radiocarbon dating. Includes ten sets of laminated puzzle sheets, reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, and comprehensive Teacher Notes. Puzzle pieces are reusable!

Super Value Kit is complete for 10 student groups. All materials are reusable.
