Students will understand the properties of light energy.
Shine some energy into your science curriculum! Kids conduct five sets of hands-on experiments. The light unit includes lesson plans, lab sheets, interactive website, flash cards, review sheet, assessment, and extension activities.
Created by master teacher Brenda Kovich, these activities are classroom-tested and kid-approved. Students explore scientific concepts through hands-on exploration. Then they make their own generalizations. A set of video links allows further exploration and clarifies concepts.
Basic Concepts Explored:
For each guiding question, students conduct two or three simple (but powerful) light experiments and make generalizations. Most materials are commonly found in the classroom. (See the preview for the entire list.)
You'll receive lesson plans, lab sheets, review, assessment, and a little “Light Reading.” A companion webpage includes relevant links and review materials. You may project the webpage or share it with your students for independent exploration.
This resource now includes five engaging extension activities. Your students will love exploring colors and shadows with these active learning experiences. Color photographs make it easy for teachers to set up light stations, activities, and experiments.
