Photon Phun

Comment:
1) Could you please provide some examples of hands on experiments that would be asked 4th and 5th graders?
2) Are 4th and 5th graders expected to be able to draw ray diagrams?

Answers:

1)The hands on experiments may come from any of the Concepts to Cover or Additional Concepts section of the Photon Phun Study Guide.  They are designed to be hands on applications of the concepts they have been studying and should take only a few minutes each to complete the experiment and answer some questions about their observations.

2)The 4th and 5th graders will not be asked to draw any ray diagrams for  lenses.  They are expected to be familiar with with them however – and likely have already come across ray diagrams in your discussions of convergent and divergent lenses.  They are expected to be be able to draw a reflection diagramsimilar to the one provided on page 2 of the Study Guide.
