Anatomy of a Wave
Pair physical science learners up, and have one describe a transverse wave while the other blindly attempts to draw it. Then reveal an actual diagram and explain the different parts of the wave: crest, trough, wavelength. Though most of the links in the resource lead to nowhere, there is one that displays an adjustable wave simulation for learners to experiment with.

Slinky Movement Lab
In this wave worksheet, students use Slinky's to observe the properties of waves. They observe longitudinal waves, transverse waves, traveling waves and standing waves and record their observations. They calculate the frequency and velocity of the waves and answer 3 questions about their data.

Light waves and sound waves are the focus of this science lesson designed for 5th graders. Besides discovering how these waves travel, learners also discover the basic properties of waves, and analyze data tables and graphs. The demonstrations described in the lesson are particularly rich, and should lead to lots of scientific discussion.

Fifth graders investigate how sound and light travel as waves and identify the basic properties of waves by analyzing data tables and graphs. They observe a transverse wave using a slinky, and analyze a sine wave. They define key vocabulary terms and draw the wave picture and label the parts, including the definitions.
