Progression with four practicals for waves

In the next steps, we will look at 4 practical lessons or demonstrations linked to waves that you can perform with your students.

Wave tray, slinky, sand bucket and ripple tank

Whilst watching each video, we would like you to think about what order you would cover these with your students and why you would select that order.

You might find it useful to make notes when watching these as we will be asking you to reflect on this afterwards, as well as discussing this with others.
