Title: Making Waves
Description:

The digital tool demonstrates the properties of a wave and defines each of the following terms: frequency, amplitude, wavelength, crest, trough, energy, and Hertz.

Students will sketch an ocean scene on a 4x6 note card that depicts a large wave moving toward a beach. Then, the students will label the parts of the wave and write the definitions to the terms on the back of the note card as they discuss the interactive digital tool.

This learning activity was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science University, GEMS-U Project.

Description:

A wave is energy in motion or energy moving from point to point. To describe the traits of a wave, there are a few terms you need to know.

Students will choose a term in the activity to display its description in the diagram.

Title: Audio Engineer | Kids Work!
URL: https://www.knowitall.org/interactive/audio-engineer-kids-work
Description:

Students will play the role of the audio engineer who monitors and adjusts the audio levels for a production. This animated interactive job exploration experience connects schoolwork with real work and familiarizes students with some of the skills involved in audio engineering. They will also understand the parts of waves and that the intensity (loudness or softness) of sound is determined by the amplitude of the sound wave.

Title: Light 1: Making Light of Science
Description:

This lesson introduces students to the electromagnetic spectrum (focusing on visible light) and the wave nature of light. Students will be introduced to the idea that all light travels as waves and that wavelength defines the various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. There are three Science NetLinks lessons in this series on light.
