|Introduction to Waves|
In this National Geographic Xpedition lesson, students learn about ocean waves. They begin by learning the components of a wave, and then discuss the meaning of wave height and wavelength. A demonstration sparks discussion about how to make waves, and an activity with the National Geographic Wave Simulator allows students to experiment with creating waves of varying sizes.
