    Energize your study of light and sound energy with hands-on science activities and corresponding video links! Lesson plans, lab sheets, companion websites, flash cards, review sheet, and assessment are all included in this bundle. Students explore scientific concepts through hands-on exploration. Then they make their own generalizations.

    Sound Concepts Explored:

    • What Is a Sound?
    • How Does Sound Travel?
    • What Is Amplitude?
    • What Is Pitch?
    • Which Materials Conduct and Insulate Sound?
    • Does Sound Travel Better Through Solids, Liquids, or Gases?
    • BONUS: Sound STEM Activities

    Light Concepts Explored:

    • How Does Light Travel?
    • Which Materials Are Transparent, Translucent, and Opaque?
    • Which Materials Reflect Light?
    • What Is Refraction?
    • What Is Color?
    • BONUS: Light Bulletin Board Letters

    For each guiding question, students conduct two or three simple (but powerful) experiments and make generalizations. Most materials are commonly found in the classroom. (Supply lists can be seen in the preview .)

    For a closer look at the components, open the preview.

    Enjoy Teaching!

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. Assessment does not include quantitative measurements of energy.
    Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
    Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
    Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
    Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. Examples of devices could include electric circuits that convert electrical energy into motion energy of a vehicle, light, or sound; and, a passive solar heater that converts light into heat. Examples of constraints could include the materials, cost, or time to design the device. Devices should be limited to those that convert motion energy to electric energy or use stored energy to cause motion or produce light or sound.
