Central Idea: Light and Sound Helps Us Experience Our World
Light Inquiry
This week we will continue to investigate the uses of light and
Shadows. In art children will need a flash light to begin
Their silhouette project. If you have not sent in the flashlight, please try to
bring one this week. To further investigate light and shadows we will be
measuring our shadows at 2 different times of day to realize that the sun
changes as the day goes on.
Monday: Go to this Science games link and experiment with shadows. Then play
the game where you change the suns position and watch the shadow move. Use
the worksheet to record the time of day in the pictures.
