Lesson Plans and Posters

Below you can find all our Lesson Plans and Posters for free download and use. Please also take a look at our Basics of Radiation leaflet here.

Lesson Plans

SRP has developed lesson plans for use in schools and colleges.  The content is matched to curriculum topics in pre-GCSE science.

Lesson Plan 1 - Basic Principles of Radiation Protection - for external sources
Lesson Plan 2 - Basic Interactions of Ionising Radiation with Matter
Lesson Plan 3 - Everyday Items
Lesson Plan 4 - Demonstration of Half-Life
Lesson Plan 5 - Fission Chips
Lesson Plan 6 - Contamination


The following posters supplement the lesson plans and are used at our shows and events.  Each poster is available as a free download.  The answers to the Poster Quiz can also be found in the posters.  More posters will be made available shortly.
