Product Description
Electromagnetic Spectrum Task Cards and Student Graphic Organizer.

Are your students having trouble differentiating between the waves and rays of the Electromagnetic Spectrum? Do they need some real life examples of where these exist and how people use them every day? If so, then these task cards may be just what they need to help them learn.

Six cards have a wave of the spectrum (i.e. X-rays) on them. The other cards have characteristics and examples. The students start by identifying the cards with the 6 main rays and then work to match each card with a characteristic to the correct ray or wave. This is not a simple one to one match. Each ray or wave should be matched to 3-4 other cards. This makes the matching more challenging and gives students more information about each type of ray. There are 36 cards in this activity.

These cards can be used for individual students or matching manipulatives for groups of two to four students. The cards are created on PowerPoint slides so you can use the slideshow in class as an answer key or even post the cards on your classroom word wall. Once the students have the cards matched up, they can use the included student graphic organizer to take notes on each of the main waves of the spectrum. Instructions for how to do the activity are included.
