Wavelengths of Learning

Our students have been learning about waves and incorporating words in their vocabularies such as crest, trough, wavelength, frequency, and amplitude, and they engaged in a few projects and simulations. We dove into the artistic side by learning about the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald and listening and analyzing the Gordon Lightfoot song’s lyrics. We then observed photos of powerful waves in the Great Lakes, known as Waves of November or November Witch Waves. Students applied their artistic skills to create chalk pastels of these powerful autumnal forces of nature.
