Amazing Waves Kit

carolina
With everyday materials, students build a simple wave machine and complete a series of simulations. They construct 4 model coastline environments to identify, compare, and specify the relationship of waves to specific geography. The class then divides into 4 large groups representing local government officials, informed citizens, an environmental group, and land developers. All do research for their group presentation at a town meeting concerning a proposed new resort. Includes instructions and materials for 24 students.
