This is a resource for physical science teachers addressing waves: transverse and longitudinal. This is an entire unit including standards addressed, activities to access prior knowledge, tests, suggested activities, and online resources.
P.8.B.2 - Students know electric currents can produce magnetic forces and magnets can cause electric currents. [E/S]
P.8.C.1 - Students know visible light is a narrow band within the electromagnetic spectrum. [I/S]
P.8.C.2 - Students know vibrations (e.g., sounds, earthquakes) move at different speeds in different materials, have different wavelengths, and set up wave-like disturbances that spread away from the source uniformly. [E/S]
