Make Waves


Waves are all around us, seen and unseen. A summer trip to the beach or to the park is a perfect opportunity to observe waves — in the ocean or in a field of grass blowing the wind. Make waves with your kids by skipping rocks across a pond, and explore the physics of waves — wavelength and frequency — using a jump rope that you and your child shake at different heights and speeds. Ask your older child to name some types of waves you can't see, such as microwaves and radio waves, and what they do.
