Electromagnetic radiation happens all around us each and every day! In this lesson, students will research examples of electromagnetic radiation. Students will complete a project where they will cite evidence for the claims and reasoning surrounding a specific electromagnetic radiation example and create a poster board to display their findings.

Learning Objectives

Students will evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by a wave model or a particle model, and that for some situations one model is more useful than the other.
