Waves, Sound, and Light Unit Plan by Herman Restrepo
An example enrichment activity I could provide for a gifted student wouldconsist of a research paper tied into a laboratory experience. I would developa list of topics associated with light or sound which the student couldchoose from. The student would then do research to find out about an experimentdealing with the topic. The student could then write a report, or preparea presentation about the experiment and the experimenter. Finally, the studentwould try to recreate the experiment (if possible) to carryout and thenmodify. In the end the student would again have to write a report or makea presentation on the modified experiment.
Waves, Sound, and Light Unit Plan
B. There are a few safety considerations when dealing with waves, whetherthey are mechanical, sound, or light waves. Since waves carry energy itis possible to do harm to a student or the classroom, controlling the wavesshould be a priority for the instructor. There will also be the use of lasersin this unit and these lasers must be handles properly, either by the instructoror under the direct supervision of the instructor. Mechanical waves maybe driven by a motor or vibrator and these could cause injury if mishandled.
