Grades 912. Through engaging activities students explore electromagnetic, mechanical, and seismic waves to learn what all waves have in common. Materials support 8 teams rotating through stations. Includes instructions.
Grades 912. Students model seismic waves with gelatin, calculate the refractive index of water, and use tuning forks to calculate the speed of sound and determine frequency from resonance. Through these engaging activities students explore electromagnetic, mechanical, and seismic waves to learn what all waves have in common. Materials support 8 teams rotating through stations. Includes instructions.
This activity helps you teach the following Next Generation Science Standards:
1-PS4-1: Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.
4-PS4-1: Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.
PS4.B: Electromagnetic Radiation
