The Work of Waves and Wind
This is not revolutionary, but it is informative. Earth science viewers in grades 7-12 get carried away with wave and wind erosion. They view diagrams of how waves impact ocean shorelines. They see examples of the different types of sand dunes and how they are formed.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Reflections of Light
Why can we see our reflection in a window but not a brick wall? Young physicists learn the Law of Reflection and various light properties that help them answer this and other questions about reflection. Use the PowerPoint to introduce these concepts, but be sure to go more in-depth if this is your only explanation.

Physics : What is Sound Part 1
In this first of two parts, Mr. Noon walks around his physics class demonstrating how sound waves move. Ironically, the sound is off from the visual in this video! Use this illustrative video to learn about different demonstrations you can do to teach your physics stars.

Earthquake Waves And Their Destructions
Learners investigate primary and secondary waves and how to measure the magnitude of waves. They discover how to find the epicenter of earthquakes. They examine why waves are more destructive in some areas than others through these activities.

Differential Thermal Calorimetry
High schoolers access prior knowledge of infrared rays, ultraviolet rays, gamma rays, x-rays and cosmic waves. For this electromagnetic waves lesson, students hold a mock trial electromagnetic spectrum. High schoolers present characteristics of the various wave types and their position in the spectrum and debate over whether government should control them.

Interactions of Waves
Ninth graders observe the behavior of circular and straight waves as they reflect off a solid boundary. In this physical science lesson, 9th graders create a poster showing wave behavior with correct labels. They make at least three generalization about wave reflection.

Wave Superposition: Interactive On-line Mac and PC
Students study definitions of wavelength, wave speed, wave amplitude, and wave period using an interactive JAVA environment. Distance and time are given so speed=wavelength/period can be verified or deduced by students. Waves reflection and standing waves can also be explored.
