Radioactivity, Time, and Age

Four activities demonstrate the chain reaction of nuclear fission to your physical science fans: falling dominoes, snapping mouse traps, throwing paper wads, and igniting a series of matches. They perform additional laboratory activities to help them understand the concept of half-life in radioactive materials. All in all, this is a comprehensive and user-friendly unit to use when teaching about nuclear energy in your physics class.
