This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching Physics: Waves and wave properties
This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:
*Identify the two main types of wave.
*Describe the key parts of a waveform.
*Explain compressions and rarefactions in terms of the spacing of particles using a particle model.
*Apply your understanding of wave forms to explain the similarities and differences between longitudinal and transverse waves.
*Link your understanding of how longitudinal waves transfer energy to explain why you cannot hear sounds in space.
This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students.
Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson.
