This activity made teaching the Domain and Range tangible for my students. It is a matter of pretending to hold a Flash Light and figuring out where the shadow falls on the x-axis and the y-axis
A visual representation on how to use the flash light is included in this a
Children will participate in a science investigation where they have to use mirrors to reflect light around corners in a maze. We used this project as an alternative to making periscopes.Learning intentions are planned alongside the 2014 National Curriculum of England, but NGSS standards from the Un
This product contains 5 investigations to help your students learn all about light. The first two pages are the recording sheets for students to fill out as they rotate through the science centers. The last 5 pages are the center cards that explain the directions for each investigation. For each cen
When you purchase and download this resource, you will receive an 18 page booklet. It includes all you need to achieve success in exploring light within your classroom.This project is aimed at developing both skills in STEM/SCIENCE learning alongside team work skills, problem solving, cooperation an
This is a short science investigation. It is a simple inquiry investigation, taking around 30-45 minutes to complete. Students will be asked to observe light traveling from a flashlight. They will be asked to make predictions, observations, and to make a conclusion--based on any new learning.
The Light Energy: Reflection Investigations packet from Beaker & Book can be used as a whole-class lesson or can be used in Science Stations. It includes:

Light and shadows are easy to take for granted, but when you look closely you will notice amazing qualities. Shadows change shape and grow. Lights become dimmer and brighter. They affect our mood. In this multi-day lesson plan, students will engage in a scientific investigation: exploring the qualit
The is a great lab to teach transfer of light/heat energy. Students will investigate on which piece of paper the ice cube will melt the quickest (white, black, green, red, purple, or yellow). This investigation can be done outside (sun - light/heat energy) or indoors using a desk lamp. This lab repo
This Spangler Phenomenon lesson about analog and digital signals is crafted to include a video created by Steve Spangler exclusively for Kesler Science. The interactive investigation will keep your students on the edge of their seats and engage their analytical skills with this Really Big Question:
The Light Energy: Refraction Investigations packet from Beaker & Book contains 8 Task Cards that can be presented in whole-class instruction or in Science Stations. This packet includes:
• Teacher Background Information
• 8 Refraction Investigations Task Cards
• Student Recording Sheets
The long-term cost of different bulb types is explored in this investigation. Making a decision between LED, Incandescent or Fluorescent bulbs involves using tables and graphs to make an informed selection. Get your students involved in discovering how their understanding of rates and ratios can hel
I created this lesson during distance learning. I adapted our Science investigations with mirrors and light beams to make them at home friendly. This lesson includes 3 separate investigations with mirrors and light beams including: How can we redirect a light beam?; Investigating light outside; and
A fun way to explore how light behaves with certain objects. This meets the 4th grade Common Core Standards for light energy. Included is a quick vocabulary check, a lab sheet that includes predictions and actual results. Students then reflect on the investigation by answering a reflection questions
