Radioactive Dating Lesson 1

Read about a recent uncovering of mammoths to engage students in a discussion of radioactive dating. This is the first lesson in a unit of 4 lessons that integrates science, math, and computer science standards to teach the concept of half-lives and radioactive dating.

Radioactive Dating Lesson 2

Students will learn about the importance of using multiple radioactive dating methods to date an artifact as well as learn about the if programming control structure. This is Lesson 2 in the Radioactive Dating Unit and will begin the experience in coding a program to illustrate student understanding of radioactive dating.

Radioactive Dating Lesson 3 - Modeling

Students will further explore the idea of radioactive dating through a drawing activity and creating a model simulation in Scratch.
