How to use this teaching resource

  • Classify the words into Light words and Sound words – brainstorm and add more words as you go.
  • Use these words as reference for writing about Light and Sound Science experiments.
  • It’s fun to play – ‘The first thing that comes to mind”  game using these words….eg during circle time – this brings out a lot of what the kiddies subconsciously already know and allows the teacher to ‘catch a glimpse’  of where their children are at with topics….

Comments & Reviews

  • I am getting really annoyed with all the sites. Over the last year I have noticed each time I go to download something it is telling me I need to upgrade… Very annoying when your level of access changes during your subscription. I don’t even know what I am paying for anymore. I will not be renewing my subscriptions next year but moving to TPT. At least in TPT I know exactly what I am paying for with no suprises.
