Monday – Week 9

Greetings!

We’ve entered “Week 9” – our final full week of the 1st quarter! I hope everyone is ready!

Today we continued with our “Rock Dating 101” theme as we learned about radioactive/absolute dating using carbon-14 (C-14) and Uranium-238 (U-238).

We completed class notes, and then began an interactive radioactive dating game simulation from the University of Colorado – Boulder. Since we did not finish this interactive simulation, we’ll finish it in the first half of class tomorrow before transitioning to our stations activities for Text Tuesday!
