1st Grade (SCI) Science Standards [PS4] Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
SCI-01.PS4.03 Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing
objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light.
Clarification Statement: Examples of materials could include those that are transparent (such as clear plastic), translucent (such as
wax paper), Opaque (such as cardboard), and reflective (such as a mirror) Disciplinary Core Ideas PS4.B: Electromagnetic Radiation
-Some materials allow light to pass through
them, others allow only some light through
and others block all the light and create a dark
shadow on any surface beyond them, where
the light cannot reach. Mirrors can be used to
redirect a light beam. (Boundary: The idea that
light travels from place to place is developed
through experiences with light sources,
mirrors, and shadows, but no attempt is made
to discuss the speed of light.)
Student Learning Targets:
Skills (Performance) Targets
I can demonstrate how light passes through materials differently.
