Waves on the Great Lakes. Teacher Guide and Activity Book. OEAGLS Investigation No. 27.
Keir, John; Mayer, Victor J.
This document contains a student guide and a teacher guide on the topic of waves. The investigation includes three activities which lead students to an understanding of how waves are formed and how they move in water. Activity A introduces students to the parts of a wave. A demonstration using a stream table leads them to discover different factors which determine the size of a wave. Activity B introduces wave motion. Students observe how waves move in a rope and in water. Activity C explains how breakers are formed and the effects they may have on the shoreline. Students use the stream table and various building materials to devise structures for protecting a harbor from the action of waves. The student guide includes an introduction, list of objectives, and descriptions of three activities, for each of which materials lists, procedures, review questions, and answer sheets are given. The teachers guide includes keywords, teacher notes, answers to the review questions, and evaluation items. (CW)
