Physical Science

Transparent, Translucent, Opaque

I am planning a first grade lesson where I am having my students explore the following standard- 1-PS4-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light. I will be having students go on a material scavenger hunt where they walk around the class with flashlights and find materials that allow different amounts of light to shine through, but I am having some trouble thinking of an engaging way to get my students excited about the lesson from the beginning. Any suggestions are very welcomed! Traci

Traci, can you make it to be something like the students are detectives and they have to locate evidence? Perhaps if they are looking for materials to build a house what might they need with those properties?
