Science for kids is fun! One of the most interesting topics for kids in science is light. What is light? Light is what enables you to see. Light is made up of waves. And where do these waves come from? These waves travel from light sources, bounce off different objects and enter our eyes, which then allows us to see things. Light waves come from light sources. Surely, you’ll next ask about light sources! Light sources come in all sizes and shapes. Small lights can help light up streets or small rooms, big lights can help light up big stadiums. Sources of light are all around us, so very rarely will you find yourself in complete darkness with no source of light. We have electric lights, like in your house, on your phones and tablets. Other ones are things you can see in the sky, like the sun, moon, and stars! When there is no source of light, this is when it would be completely dark and you will not be able to see anything.
This video satisfies the 1-PS4-2 requirement(s) for first grade proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
1-PS4-2. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects in darkness can be seen only when illuminated.
