PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Energize your study of light with five sets of hands-on science activities and a corresponding website! Lesson plans, lab sheets, website, flash cards, review sheet, and assessment are all included in this light unit.

Concepts Explored:
• How Does Light Travel?
• Which Materials Are Transparent, Translucent, and Opaque?
• Which Materials Reflect Light?
• What Is Refraction?
• What Is Color?

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.

This product includes Light Lesson Plans, Light Lab Sheets, Light Review, Light Assessment, and a little “Light Reading.” A companion website, Exploring Light, was created to share with students. It includes relevant links, review materials, and opportunities for extra exploration. You may project the website or share it with your students for independent exploration.

Suggested Sequence:
Pretest - Use the true/false pretest to determine students’ understanding of light.
Experiment
• Option 1 - Set up all light activities as centers, rotating small groups every five or ten minutes.
• Option 2 - Conduct one or two light experiments each day.
Read and Explore - Use text and videos found in the Exploring Light website to reinforce and expand students’ understanding of sound.
Review - Have students study light concepts using flash cards and study guide.
Posttest - Administer the true/false posttest to assess students’ growth.

Are you ready to try blended learning? Combining classroom activities with online learning will energize your students (and you!) My students love it! For a closer look at the components, click PREVIEW.
