~ Energy Travels in Waves ~

Welcome back to More with Music!

Today I am sharing a song that helps teach students about energy and different types of waves.  The four types of waves in this song are ocean waves, light waves, sound waves and seismic waves.

This a great song to use with students when introducing wave types, as it gives examples and brief descriptions of each wave type.  Many students enjoy "doing the wave" (they have probably seen this done at football, baseball, and basketball stadiums), and you can incorporate this each time the chorus is sung.  Students can make a wave motion with their arms and then students can "pass" the wave to other students.

The chorus of the song can also be recorded into a voice output device (BigMac,etc.), so that a student who is nonverbal can participate in the song as well.

I hope you are enjoying the summer.  Having free time is fabulous in my neck of the woods. :)
Have a great weekend and be sure to stop by next week for another song post!
