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
This lesson describes how sound is reflected, transmitted, and absorbed, focusing on applications in technology like SONAR and in animals like echolocation. It is part of a five-lesson series on Waves and Electromagnetic Radiation (click for bundle). This lesson supports MS-PS4 (Waves and their Ap
This is a graphic organizer I use when teaching about the Behavior of Light Waves. Students must give a explain how light waves behave in a medium then illustrate real life examples. This could be used as a formal or informal assessment of student comprehension.

This lesson was developed to help students understand the Law of Reflection using something they are very familiar with - "selfies". It helps them make real world connections to science concepts of waves and reflection. It was developed to address NGSS middle School standard PS 4-2 Develop and use
The main focus of the lesson is to show students how waves interact and behave in various mediums. It begins by introducing wave behaviour in various mediums including solids, liquids gases and in outer space. It then examines how sound travel differs in different weather conditions as well as whe
This zip file contains materials for a middle school science lesson on waves and the concepts of reflection, refraction and diffraction, as part of a unit on waves and energy. The unit was designed for 7th graders in NYC.

This fully editable PPT assignment includes a reading on Resonance, Reflection, Refraction, and Diffraction adapted from Pearson text. It features a graphic organizer where students demonstrate understanding of reflection, refraction, and diffraction after the teacher models how to close read and co
A PowerPoint presentation that guides students through basic principles of refraction, diffraction, reflection, absorption, constructive interference and destructive interference using multiple graphics and images while drawing on students background knowledge.
This is a formative assessment that can be used during your Waves unit to assess student learning. It can also be used as a study guide or review to revisit mastered concepts.
This test covers the behavior of waves through different mediums.
It has multiple choice questions about reflection, ref

After learning about the Three Perspectives of Sociology, and other key case studies, some time was spent applying what was learned. Here students watched The Wave (available on Netflix), and needed to decide which three concepts were most responsible for the actions that they saw in the movie-- Mob
This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching Physics: Waves. This lesson has links to reflection, and the laws of reflection.
This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:
*Identify images that have been reflected.
*Describe the properties of a
Reflection questions based on the text incorporating the theme Conformity and Rebellion. Emphasis placed on how institutions affect a person's needs and desires to conform or rebel for alignment with the alignment of curriculum 9-12 in North Carolina. The questions are meant to make students think
This very basic worksheet is intended to give students opportunity to draw a "normal" line and the reflected wave for 6 different incident beams of light. Students also note the angle of incidence and angle of reflections.This product comes in WORD format, so it's easily edited to meet your needs.
