Product Description

Are your students studying reflection and light? This Physical Science STEAM and STEM challenge provides a hands-on learning approach to understanding how reflection impacts human sight! This project requires students to develop a model which describes how light reflecting from objects enters the eyes, causing sight. The activity incorporates the engineering design cycle and includes a leveled text. Students use their observations to write a learning report before a classroom showcase. Writing prompts round out this jammed packed set!

Last Update: April 3rd 2018

Student Directions Page:

The presented scenario sets students up to create their light reflection submission for the local children's museum.

Student Brainstorming Page:

Engineering Design Cycle Reflection:

Students will reflect about what they did as they worked through each part of the engineering design cycle.

Design & Testing Page:

After students have designed and constructed their model, they will test their design and draw conclusions, making modifications as necessary.

Engineering Learning Report:

Students will complete a one-page report detailing their model, applying mathematics, and conclusion.

Grading Rubric:

The grading rubric allows teachers to assess how students created a model showcasing how reflection impacts vision.

Science Leveled Passage: Sight: How do Human Eyes Work? 3 Leveled Texts

Students will read a leveled passage about the 5 senses and eyes and answer questions based on their understanding.

• 3.4

• 4.4

• 5.3

5 Venn Diagrams:

Students will use data and observation from their STEAM and understanding of concave and convex lenses to complete the Venn Diagrams.

3 Informational Writing Prompts:

Students draw on knowledge of light gained during the STEAM project and further research to complete the writing tasks.

1 Show What you Know: Reflective Task & Writing Prompt

Students will draw on knowledge of light and complete a reflective task before writing about their observation and drawing conclusions

Interactive Graphic Organizer: Light Vocabulary
