Curriculum Outcomes involved: 


  • Physical Science: Light
    • Optical Devices
      • Describe properties of light that have led to the development of optical devices that enhance our ability to observe
      • Compare and describe how light interacts with a variety of optical devices and construct an optical device that performs a specific function
    • Sources of Light
    • Plan an investigation and communicate questions and ideas with others about light emitted frm an object, its own or an external source
    • Light Radiates from a Source
    • Observe, demonstrate, and make conclusions about how light travels and is dispersed from a variety of light sources
    • Objects that Absorb, Transmit, and/or Reflect Light
    • Investigate and predict how light interacts with a variety of objects (including changes in the location, shape, and relative size of a shadow) in order to determine whether objects cast shadows, allow light to pass, and/or reflect light
    • Classify objects as opaque, transparent, or translucent
    • Make observations and collect information about the reflective and refractive properties of various materials of different shapes
    • Bending Light
    • Demonstrate and describe how a variety of media can be used to change the direction of light
    • Dispersion of Light
    • Demonstrate that white light can be separated into colours (dispersion) and follow a set of procedures to make and use a colour wheel




  • Physical Science: Sound
  • Sound Vibrations
    • Relate vibrations to sound production and compare how vibrations travel different through a variety of materials
