Three excellent learning cycles on light written in the 5 e format are sure to engage your students. They are aligned with the first grade NGSS for physical science.
NGSS 1-PS4-2. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.
NGSS 1-PS4-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
These are inquiry based, hands-on science lessons using easy to obtain household materials to teach several important concepts about light. Great STEM connection. Created by Lynda R Williams
