What a Ham!

Your students are most likely familiar with test-messages and cell phones, but do they know about these special messengers? Amateur radio operators have been sending messages much longer than students may realize. This fun word search could serve as a catalyst to researching the history of amateur radio and great discussions about its benefits today. For instance, students could research how Morse Code has been used during wartime or how it benefits people when a natural disaster strikes. You could even invite a Ham from your community to your school for a demonstration!

Your students can learn more about amateur radio by visiting AARL.org
