Activity Overview

Going in-depth into one part of the electromagnetic spectrum is a great way for students to better understand and distinguish each part. With this assignment, they'll create a poster after researching one of the types of radiation: radio, micro, infrared, visible light, ultra violet, x ray, and gamma. Students should include where the radiation falls on the spectrum, the wavelength, dangers, uses, and any other information they or you deem important. Students can then print out or digitally present their posters to the class!

For additional templates to add to this assignment, see our poster template gallery.
