This unit is on Waves: Transmission, Absorption, Reflection, and Refraction. It is aligned with NGSS MS PS4-2 and Utah SEEd 8.2.5. It includes a slide show and two strategic notetaking guides. It begins with phenomena and includes two labs on absorption, transmission, reflection, and refraction.
This unit also includes two reading informational text passages, response pages, interactive notebook folds, and a quiz at the end of the unit.
Aligned with these standards:
MS PS4-2 Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
Develop and use a model to describe the of waves and how they are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials. Emphasize both light and mechanical waves. Examples could include drawings, simulations, and written descriptions of light waves through a prism, mechanical waves through gas vs. liquids vs. solids, or sound waves through different mediums. (PS4.A, PS4.B)
