Here is first a lesson where student get familiar with earths major water bodies.   Followed up with an activity where they get to practice making waves on their own and seeing how boats move around on the ocean.

Additionally are   two simulations that show first in a simple way how wavelength, period and height interact.

The second simulation is a look at the ocean where the waves can be studied as a section of the whole ocean rather than a single wave.
