GREAT Visual of the Electromagnetic Spectrum. While light and other electromagnetic waves do not require a medium and can travel through a vacuum, they can travel through some media, such as clear glass.
Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum longer than infrared light. Radio waves have frequencies from 300 GHz to as low as 3 kHz, and corresponding wavelengths ranging from 1 millimeter (0.039 in) to 100 kilometers (62 mi). Like all other electromagnetic waves, they travel at the speed of light. Naturally occurring radio waves are made by lightning, or by astronomical objects. #Glogster #RadioWaves
This is a great project for your students to complete when learning about the Electromagnetic Spectrum. Students are to create a model of the EM Spectrum. The model will demonstrate the relationship between wavelength, frequency, and energy. Students will include all 7 types of radiation in order of energy, whether from low to high or high to low.
This worksheet will have students create an electromagnetic spectrum, provide explanations and sketches of translucent, transparent, and opaque objects, as well as touch on the primary colors of pigment and light.
Looking for a fun, engaging instructional resource for the electromagnetic spectrum? Why not give doodle notes a try? Doodle Notes will aid in student concept retention, focus, creativity, and engagement.
Electromagnetic Spectrum Definitions for Word Walls and Bulletin Boards
Electromagnetic Spectrum Definitions for Word Walls and Bulletin Boards This is a set of 8 words for Physics or Chemistry that can be used to study the Electromagnetic Spectrum. There is a total of 16 cards -- one card with the name of the spectrum, the wavelength range and some visuals, and one card with details about the function of the waves in that part of the spectrum.
