National Science Education Standards
Physical Science: Content Standard B
As a result of the activities in grades
K-4, all students should develop an understanding of light, heat, electricity, and magnetism.
Virginia Standards of Learning 5.3a-e:
The student will investigate and understand basic characteristics of visible light and how it behaves.
(*Key concepts, 5.3a-e, are listed in your teacher curriculum guide)
Did you realize cameras and camcorders are light detectors too?
#31 By passing white light through a prism,
you can tell-
*A Science Museum of VA:
Light Science Activity
*Slide info from NSTA 2004 conference
Remember radio waves are long…and gamma rays are small
Radio-TV -Microwave- Infrared - VISIBLE -Ultraviolet -X-rays - Gamma- Cosmic
Place a sheet of white paper inside a cardboard box
Tape three thermometers together and place inside box
Cut a small notch in the top of the box and position a glass prism so that the spectrum is projected inside the box
Arrange the thermometers so that one is just outside the red end of the spectrum, with no visible light falling on it
(film or digital)
*PASCO Probe Activity OR
Prism Power Activity
He can get skin cancer!
Chandra X-ray Observatory
*Slide from 2004 NSTA Conference
How big are the waves?
(Eye of a needle);
WOW! All the rest are the size of molecules, atoms, atomic nuclei and smaller..
Part III looks at: reflection and refraction of LIGHT.
Part I examines: what is light? Waves, opaque, transparent,
& translucent, & sources of light around us.
Special thanks to NSTA Conference 2004 workshops on light!
