INQUIRING INTO LIGHT AND SOUND

This is our fourth week in the Unit of Inquiry into “Light
and sound help us experience our world.” We will be
exploring how to make sound using bottles and how to use
the sun’s light at different times of the day to measure the
length of our shadow.

Ways to Extend Your Child:
 Using glass cups, add different amounts of water
into the cups and spin your finger around the rim.
Listen to the different pitches.
 At night, create a tent out of sheets and chairs and
use a flashlight to tell stories or read a book.
 Put glow in the dark stars (found at Toy Store in
Dubai mall) into your child’s room. At night, look
at the stars and try to make pictures or
constellations and create stories from the pictures
they see.

MATH
This week, we will exploring capacity and height as well as
reviewing addition, subtraction and fractions. Students will
be investigating how many small or large cups of popcorn
kernels fit into various containers. Each student will also be
measuring their height.
