Differential Thermal Calorimetry
Students access prior knowledge of infrared rays, ultraviolet rays, gamma rays, x-rays and cosmic waves. In this electromagnetic waves lesson, students hold a mock trial electromagnetic spectrum. Students 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.

What Are Waves?
In this types of waves worksheet, students will read 9 types of waves and classify them as either mechanical, electromagnetic, transverse, or compressional waves. Then students will label two wave diagrams with the 8 kinds of waves represented in the diagram.

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.
