The University of Colorado hosts an interactive Radioactive Dating Game that teaches students about carbon and other radiometric dating types, as well as half-life and decay functions.
Students must match the age of items with the percentage of dating elements remaining to win the game.
The activity calls for students to simulate half-life properties of isotopes using bags of beads as "rocks and fossils." Appropriate for grades 5 to 8, the activity assigns parent isotopes to different color beads and asks students to solve problems such as arranging the "fossils" in age from youngest to oldest and finding the two "fossils" which are closest in age.
The college also offers a game that simulates radioactive decay using dice.
