First graders complete sunlight and solar effects activities to learn about light and its power. In this solar activity activity, 1st graders complete a sunscreen test activity, a light test, a black light test, a cloudy test, a sunglasses activity, a UV filters activity, and a UV bead bracelet activity to learn about light and its effects.
Remote Sensing and the Electromagnetitc Spectrum
Fifth graders conclude that each color of the spectrum has a different amount of thermal energy by measuring temperature with a thermometer. They infer that there is an invisible band of the spectrum by measuring temperature beyond the visible light.
There's More to Light than Meets the Eye
Students explore the concept that not all light is visible to the human eye. Although UV light is not visible, it can still be harmful, causing sunburns or skin cancer. They use special beads to detect UV light around the school. Students then conduct an experiment to determine what types of materials are best for blocking UV light on Earth, as well as in space.
K - 4th Science
Students explore the properties of light. In this light lesson, students investigate visible light by viewing a website, examining an electromagnetic spectrum chart, and observing light demonstrations. Students write about their observations in a science journal.
5th - 8th 21st Century Skills
USING YEAST AS AN ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT MEASUREMENT TOOL
High schoolers realize the importance of organisms as standards of measurement and experimentation.The first lab is a simple survival curve that demonstrates the effects of UV light on cells. The second lab looks at repair mechanisms of the DNA molecule from visible light.
9th - 12th Science
Fun Physics You Can See
Fascinating aspects of electromagnetic radiation and its use in obtaining and transferring information are described here. Learners will find the connections to current technology interesting. Although the slides are text-heavy, they do include supporting diagrams that will pique the interest of your physical science class.
7th - 12th Science
Passport to Adventure
Students examine the function of the passport system of their country. Then they make simple accordion-fold books. Students also design and fabricate stamps with which to record information in their books. Finally, they identify and interpret recent technological devices used to cut down on passport crime, such as embedded photographs seen only with ultraviolet light and holographic messages.
1st - 6th Social Studies & History
Break the Code: Astronomy
Here is a quick puzzle-style worksheet for your aspiring astronomers. A code is printed at the top of the page and learners use it to fill in the blanks describing different phenomena or objects in outer space. The material does not even need to be taught before assigning the worksheet; It is really best used as a fun time filler.
4th - 8th Science
Here are some instructions for leading learners through a hands-on activity for investigating ultraviolet radiation. First, introduce them to light and refraction. Then introduce them to the electromagnetic spectrum. Finally, give individuals a chance to write a message with a cotton swab and liquid bluing agent.
4th - 8th Science
Students investigate materials that emit light. In this deep ocean instructional activity, students compare and contrast materials that emit light under certain conditions and infer the light-producing process. They explain three ways this evidence is used to study deep-sea organisms.
7th - 8th Science
New Review Types of Radiation
Learn about radiation, and what everyday items produce radiation, with a series of activities about heat transfer. Kids go over basic information about electromagnetic waves and ionizing radiation before performing several experiments and completing a worksheet about where to find sources of radiation in their community.
