4 Not just for primary
While this article is aimed towards children k-2, I believe that this article can apply to children up till grade 4. In the grade 4 classroom, we have been exploring many different aspects of light and this article touches upon all and explains how students are curious and this is a subject they will find interesting.Children understand the basic concepts of light, such as reflection and that they can see and often feel it but there is so much more to light then that. I really like how this article gives the reader a simple way to introduce children to light and the first steps revolve around students independent exploration. As teachers, I think it is important to not only teach students but let students learn on their own. Overall, this article is great and involves lots of great ideas for teaching many grade levels about light!
