Taking a Stand on Nuclear Power?

Unit 2: Unit 3-Nuclear Chemistry
Lesson 7 of 10

Objective: SWBAT compare and contrast nuclear processes (fission, fusion and radioactive decay) in terms of changes in numbers of subatomic particle and characteristics of emitted energy.

Big Idea: A formal explanation of fission and fusion is provided to accompany the exploration of fission from the previous lesson. Students begin to formulate an opinion of nuclear power
