This PowerPoint was designed to address the NGSS 4th Grade Science Standards.
The PowerPoint is broken into two parts; Part 1 begins with sound and details how sound is formed from waves. Key vocabulary words are introduced in an interactive way, so that the PowerPoint can be more student-centered. One slide shows pictures of various sounds and students will determine what the amplitude and wavelength would look like for each. A sound video is also included. For part 2, the slides on light begin with determining how light travels based on pictures. Key vocabulary words are introduced such as reflections, refraction, and the 3 classifications of the amount of light that passes through objects. (opaque, translucent, and transparent). A cool video is included that shows the students how we see color.
Notes for the teacher are included on almost every slide with suggestions on how to make the slides interactive. A notes page is included for students to complete throughout the PowerPoint or as an assessment.
Ideally, combining this product with hands on activities like the ones found in my Light and Sound Unit would be best for developing a strong conceptual understanding of Energy through several hands on activities.
