PowerPoint Presentation includes how waves are created, types of waves (transverse, longitudinal, and surface), and parts of a wave (wavelength, crest, trough, elevation, cycle, amplitude and frequency).
The Anatomy of a Wave: This page from The Physics Classroom website discusses the parts of a wave. The meaning of amplitude and wavelength is clearly explained.
Waves Practice - Parts of a Transverse and Longitudinal Wave
This is a practice sheet I use when teaching the parts of a wave. Students must distinguish between wave types, label the parts of the wave, and answer a few questions. This can be used as a formal or informal assessment.
This is a great review over the basics of waves. Students have to label the parts of a transverse wave, use a diagram to determine if it has a high or low frequency, draw a wave with a long wavelength, and more. This can be used for classwork, homework or a quiz.
This test covers: the parts of a volcano types of volcanoes direction particles move during all types of seismic waves student ability to name and describe types of faults by looking at a picture effects of volcanoes and earthquakes
Parting of the Red Sea: Chapter Saving Action - Use paper folded to the middle. - cut out waves from marbled paper or blue tissue, -stick brown crumpled paper to middle for the sea bed - draw Moses and the people crossing
