Radioactivity Worksheets

Some atoms spontaneous emit energized particles or radioactive waves. These are called radioactive atoms. Atoms of elements are more prone to be radioactive. The energy that is present in these atoms is highly harmful to biological cells that become extremely damaged in the presence of radiation. There are three form of nuclear radiation in the form of alpha particles that are large particles and humans can protect themselves with minimal protective clothing. Beta particles and gamma rays are highly damaging forms of radiation. These worksheets will have students explore radioactivity from top to bottom.
