A Discussion Storyboard is a storyboard that is designed to promote discussion in the classroom. Each storyboard is a situation or a question that is paired with a visual and different viewpoints on the situation. At the most basic level, they will show a problem with fictitious students giving their opinion on the problem. Normally at least one of the characters will give the scientifically accepted viewpoint, with the other characters giving misconceptions.
The electromagnetic spectrum, or EM spectrum, is all around us. The light we use to see, the microwaves that allow us to use our cells phones, the radio waves used to broadcast music to our cars, and the gamma rays used to treat cancer, are all the same waves varying only by wavelength and frequency. The EM spectrum has far-reaching uses that have changed the way we live. However alongside this, they also come with some hazards. For example, Gamma rays have the most energy and can cause cancer, but there are plenty of other types of radiation that can harm humans. The activities in this guide will help students master the different types of radiation in the EM spectrum.
