Waves Unit: This is a 642 slide PPT covering an entire Waves unit. This is specifically tied to North Carolina Essential Standards, or NC Essential Standards for 6th grade. The PPT is designed to cover in detail the unpacked standards.
However, this unit would work for any Waves unit. This would also be awesome for any home school program. We do not have books and this is how I teach the curriculum!
Included in the PPT are:
-assessments (pre-test for the unit, post test for the unit, 4 vocab quizzes),
-print off of unpacked standards for plan book
-guided notes for students who need modifications with answer keys
-1 graphic organizer
- 4 Worksheets
-1 flow map ( I use this as an outline for a bulletin board), 2 worksheets
- Handout with worksheet on Vocal Cords
-4 mini labs (easy labs to use in a classroom with limited supplies)
-2 guided video notes (must have discovery education account to access one of the videos)
-unit PowerPoint teaching in detail the unpacked standards of this entire unit, necessary background information, and digging deep areas! Things that I require my students to write in their notes are in red.
The unit covers:
-Types of Waves (Mechanical/Electromagnetic and Transverse/Longitudinal)
-Interactions Waves undergo
-Light as a type of energy traveling as an electromagnetic wave
-Properties of light
-the different interactions light can go through when in contact with matter
-Visible Light part of Electromagnetic Spectrum
-Opaque, Translucent and Transparent
-Structures and Functions of the Human Eye
-Properties of Sound
-Speed of Sound in different matter
-Interactions of Sound waves
-Structures and Functions of the Human Ear
