Description

Every year during the atomic structure unit, I discussion Nuclear Power with my students.  After learning how to balance and write nuclear equations, our conversations center around the pros and cons of using Nuclear Power.  This project is a visual aid for the beginning of that discussion.  My intention is to use it as a classroom opener, providing each student with a data set to become an expert in (1-33) and the questions below will be used to start our discussions.

The data for this project was retrieved from the  following website:

The Guardian: Nuclear power plant accidents: listed and ranked since 1952

Opener Questions: 

1.  Which area of the world shows the highest number of nuclear accidents?

2. Which accidents have an INES rating of 5 or higher?  Describe what happened at each of these locations.

3.  Which area of the world show the least number of nuclear accidents?  Why do you think this is?
