Here's a problem for you. Communicate with a friend across a football field without using any waves. You can't do it. That's because we use waves all the time. But how do we? In Everyday Waves you'll learn about waves and what they do for us. Use toys, "sticky notes", water, beads, simple lenses, water pipes, soda pop bottles and cans, space blankets, coins and coat hangers to learn about what waves are and can do. Find out how sound, light, and heat use all these and much more to make Everyday Waves. Get hot and cold, slice ice, "fix" broken glass, make music, bend light, use light-detecting beads, find out why the sky is blue, make a simple camera, and slice up light.
Seela Science specializes in taking an individual state’s Science Standards and customizing a K-8th curriculum to match completely what each teacher is mandated to teach in that state. We can do this because we have written over 800 activities, covering all the science concepts and teaching levels. These are kept individually in our curriculum library. This gives us the freedom to customize to the needs of an individual state.
