This lesson introduces students to the Electromagnetic Spectrum. The lesson begins with a comical narrative chain which leads in to a simple jump roping activity that will simulate an electromagnetic wave. The teacher will then prompt the students with discussion prompts related to jump rope as it acts as a metaphor for the Electromagnetic Spectrum. Students then label the EMS using the narrative chain as a reference. Finally, the class then discusses uses of each type of wave and possibilities for the future.
