Students in 8th-grade science are learning about how the structure of a wave affects its ability to be reflected, absorbed, transmitted, or refracted through various mediums. To demonstrate how sound travels the fastest through solids, Mrs. Fordiani's class filmed a domino race where the dominoes modeled the molecules of solids, liquids, and gasses. They were able to show how energy moves through the molecules by knocking over the dominoes at the same time.
