These are task cards I created to use to check for mastery with our Light unit. These are designed with 4th grade in mind, but they could be used in other grades are remediation, pre-teaching, or extension. Each is open ended to ensure they are not just guessing the answer and not really taking the time to think about and apply what they know. I included an answer sheet students could use to record their thoughts. It is large enough to allow for the short answer. I have my students use notebook paper to save on copies, but the option is there! You can copy the answer sheets front to back.
~how light travels
~transparent, translucent, opaque (identify and explain)
*definition, diagrams, and examples
~concave and convex lenses (what they do and how they work)
~prism (what it is and how it works)
~how we see a rainbow in nature
~how shadows are formed
~how we see colors (including black and white)
These could be used as individual practice, an assessment, a group activity, homework, or for an early finisher.
I hope your class gets great use out of these task cards!
