Wavelength (noun)
A wavelength is the distance from the top of one wave to the top of the next.
With your partner, list three objects that create sound. Also, label if they could create a high pitch, low pitch, or BOTH.
The distance from
crest to crest is called the wavelength.
The wavelength may be either long or short.
NOT a wavelength:
