Pre-K Learning About Light!

Learning about light helped to brighten up Pre-K during the month of January! During the "Luminous Light " unit, students learned about the sun, moon, stars and shadows. In one lesson, Mrs. Hendricks' and Mrs. Pickard's classes worked together to answer the question, "What color is light?"

All students started with an observation chart where each student colored using the one color they thought light was. Most students chose yellow, while a few chose orange. After sharing out their thinking, students used diffraction circles, "magic glasses" and transparent prisms to discover light can be many colors! Once the experimenting was complete, students used water color and painted on their observation chart using all the colors of light they saw. Students had so much fun and loved the hands-on experience and discovery.
