Transverse and Longitudinal Waves

For Teachers 6th - 12th
It is not a unique or exciting lesson, but rather the typical demonstrations of transverse and longitudinal waves. Use a rope for modeling transverse waves, and a plastic coil or spring toy for longitudinal waves.

Anatomy of a Wave

For Teachers 6th - 12th
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...
