Sound, light, heat and even earthquakes travel in waves. Waves are a transfer of energy, and understanding them allows us to better understand the world around us. Students learn about the common characteristics of waves through real-life examples and clearly illustrated graphics. A fun, hands-on activity will help students understand these basic concepts.
