Curriculum Target Grade: 4
Suitable for Grades: 3-5
Our popular in-house Light workshop has been transformed into a virtual “talk show” program that is sure to engage your students. Fun With Light! will include visuals, interactive demonstrations, and “live” interviews with other characters. Utilizing many outcomes from the Grade 4 Light cluster, students learn the basic scientific principles of light, how we’ve used it to improve our lives, and discover what it can tell us about the universe. In the hands-on workshop portion, students make their very own kaleidoscope they can keep!
NOTE: This program has supplies that will be sent out upon confirmation of booking. As a result, a minimum of two weeks’ notice is required for booking. In addition to the base fee for the session, there is also a charge of $2.25 per student for the kaleidoscope supplies.
