I. Subject and Grade Level: 4th Grade, Science
II. Topic: Waves
III. Standards:
State:
4-PS4-1. Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.

4-PS4-3. Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.

4-PS4-3. Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.

IV. Measureable Objectives:
• Given a lesson on the terms amplitude, frequency, and wavelength, students will be able to identify these parts of a wave 2/3 times.
• Given a lesson on the terms amplitude, frequency, and wavelength, students will be able to define these terms with 90% accuracy.
• Give a lesson on amplitude, frequency, and wavelength, students will be able to identify how these terms relate to each other with 90% accuracy.
V. Materials):
• Science journal
• For each group of 4 students: o Piece of yarn approx. 2 yards o 2 different colored buttons o 2 different colored pipe cleaners o 1 piece of tape
• SMART Board/Compatible technology
VI. Character Education Principle: Determination
• Students will become “effective problem solvers and decision makers” (Character Counts, 2015).
• Using sound can help us identify problems and move through life situations
VII. Set:
• Review previous lessons concepts.
“Who can…
