In this lesson plan students learn about the varying sizes of ocean waves, what causes the variation, and where to find giant waves. Students will learn the parts of a wave, and discuss wave height, wavelength, and wave period. They will experiment with creating waves on the National Geographic Wave Simulator and discuss how geography affects waves. Full description.

Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe. While the physics of these objects is not understood, and they cannot be seen directly, indirect observations have revealed for certain that black holes do exist. This animation shows an artist's conception of what it might be like to see a super-massive black hole in the center of a spiral galaxy. A background essay and list of discussion ...

This text discusses differences in ocean tides. Along America's Atlantic Coast, two high and low tides occur daily. Such tides are called semidiurnal. On the north shore of the Gulf of Mexico, the tide is diurnal, meaning that it moves in and out again once a day while in the Pacific Northwest, there are mixed tides, two highs and two lows a day, characterized by significant disparity between successive ...

This experiment can be completed in a single class period and examines how pressure affects water flow. In small groups, students work with water and a soda bottle, and then relate their findings to pressure in the deep ocean. The printable six-page handout includes a series of inquiry-based questions to get students thinking about pressure, both in the air and under water, illustrated experiment ... Full description.
