6 ) Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength, and including that waves can cause objects to move.

[SC2015] PS8 (8) 17 :
17 ) Create and manipulate a model of a simple wave to predict and describe the relationships between wave properties (e.g., frequency, amplitude, wavelength) and energy.

a. Analyze and interpret data to illustrate an electromagnetic spectrum.

Title: Light 1: Making Light of Science
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/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.

2 ) Plan and carry out investigations that explain transference of energy from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

a. Provide evidence that heat can be produced in many ways (e.g., rubbing hands together, burning leaves) and can move from one object to another by conduction.

b. Demonstrate that different objects can absorb, reflect, and/or conduct energy.

c. Demonstrate that electric circuits require a complete loop through which an electric current can pass.

[SC2015] (4) 8 :
8 ) Construct a model to explain that an object can be seen when light reflected from its surface enters the eyes.

17 ) Create and manipulate a model of a simple wave to predict and describe the relationships between wave properties (e.g., frequency, amplitude, wavelength) and energy.

a. Analyze and interpret data to illustrate an electromagnetic spectrum.

Title: Light 2: The Lighter Side of Color
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/light-2-the-lighter-side-of-color/
Description: This lesson focuses on the idea that we can see objects because they either emit or reflect light. This lesson will lead to a  discussion about the way light is reflected, absorbed, and scattered to allow certain wavelengths to reach the eye, leading to a perception of different colors. There are three Science NetLinks lessons in this series on light.
