“The universe seems to like talking to itself faster than the speed of light,” said Steinberg. “I could understand a universe where nothing can go faster than light, but a universe where the internal workings operate faster than light, and yet we’re forbidden from ever making use of that at the macroscopic level — it’s very hard to understand.”

This 45-page science mini-book was created to help teach the Next Generation Science Standards for 4th grade 4-PSR (Waves and their applications in technology for information transfer), but it could also be used with 5th or 6th graders because I added some additional information beyond the standard.This mini-book covers the following principles: what is a wave, what are mechanical waves, sound waves, water waves, seismic waves, spring waves, what are electromagnetic waves, radio waves…
