Included in this set are five labs designed to meet the NGSS first grade standards for light science:
-Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects in darkness can be seen only when illuminated.
-Plan and conduct investigations to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
-Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance.
The labs included are as follows:
-Transparent or Opaque
-My Shadow and Me
-Communicating with Light (PPT included)
All of the labs are hands-on and first grade friendly. The labs require some materials, but most of them are common classroom objects such as arts and craft supplies and flashlights. The labs can be completed in groups, individually, in pairs, or as a whole group depending on your specific classroom needs. Each lab includes the materials needed, directions, and reflection questions.
