Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
What would our lives be without light? We need it to see everything we do in every moment of the day. We rely on light to read a book, cross the street, admire artwork, watch the sunset and look into faces. Light plays a role in some of our most sophisticated technology. It enables us to play music from a CD or record movies. High-speed optical cable is used in our communications. Lasers are employed in cutting-edge surgery and defence.
The Light shows unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. It provides opportunities for students to explore the properties of light and how it enables us to see. Students’ thinking about light and its role in our lives and our community will be developed using hands-on activities. Through investigations students explain how objects reflect, absorb and refract light, and how we can use light to meet our needs.
A digital version of this unit is available free for educational, non-commercial use by Australian educators through the NDLRN/Scootle or your local jurisdictional portal.
