LOL) I recorded the script & activity directions on Vocaroo - a fun, free, easy voice recording site that requires no sign-up and gives links, embed code, and a QR Code!

So, I've been inspired lately by a lot of amazing teacher librarians who have written about doing this lesson or some kind of variation (resource links below) and though they sounded awesome, they were too much work. Think Chuck Woolery cheezy love connection with a dash of Marvin Gaye! Take a book cart and shop for some hot books around your library media center.
Decorations, tablecloths, candles, writing activities, dating profiles on Good Reads, Shelfari, Libary Thing, or Shelfari -- so being naturally enthusiasticaly indolent, I wanted to find a quick & dirty way to get kids looking at books, checking out books, and moving around the library.

Here’s how it works: While they are alive, living organisms take in small amounts of a naturally radioactive type of carbon called carbon-14 from the atmosphere.
The carbon-14 then decays at a constant rate after the plants or animals die; how much is left today tells scientists how long ago the organism died.
The result: alternating layers under the lake bottom that make it easy to identify every year, one after the other, going well back into the last Ice Age.
