PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Why is the Sky Blue? Why are Sunsets Red? - Everything you need is right here including the lesson (student and teacher versions), 4 embedded videos, 1 online simulation and a student lesson handout. The lesson briefly introduces light and the electromagnetic spectrum then focuses on visible light and how the color the of sky changes depending on the time of day. It answers the question: Why is it blue during the day and red at night?

Inside the lesson package you'll find:

- The teacher version of the power point
- The student version of the power point
- 4 embedded videos
- 1 online simulation
- Student lesson handout

**Plus: Included with your purchase are two special bonus Reading Comprehension Activities which will further engage your students and extend their understanding**

In order, the lesson covers:
- The Sun
- Light
- The Electromagnetic Spectrum
- Visible Light and Color
- Rainbows
- Why is the sky blue?
- Why is the Moon’s sky black?
- Why are sunsets red?

The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
