Learn About Light - Resources for a Unit Study
Science can be one of those scary things to teach but it doesn't have to be! Science is all about hands on learning. Don't be afraid of it! Have FUN with it!!!!!
Science is one of my favorite things to teach and I think it's one of the most natural things for kids to learn. Kids are so curious about the world around them and that's exactly what science is all about. How many times have you heard your kids ask why?? Well, science answers most of those questions! LOL
The resources I found for a light unit would be perfect to pair with an anatomy unit on eyes.
As always, I include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, or on Amazon.
All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.
