What educators are saying

Light and Sound Close Reading bundle includes two close reading sets.

Product Contents

There are 14 pages total in the bundle, and each light and sound set will be used over 3-5 days.

Light and Sound Waves

Light Terms: Transparent, Translucent, and Opaque

Concave and Convex Lenses

Reflection and Refraction

Colors (ROY G. BIV)

Pitch, Frequency, and Volume
