Sources of Light

We learned that light can come from a natural source or an artificial source. As a visual reminder of the two different sources of light, we completed a sort of various pictures and put them onto one of two large images — a light bulb to represent artificial light or a sun to represent natural light. This will stay up for the remainder of our unit just in case we forget the difference between natural and artificial light.

The day after we completed the sort, the children had an assignment to create two different pictures – one that represented sources of natural light and one that represented sources of artificial light. Rather than just draw three different sources of light off in la-la-land (as I like to say 🙂 ), each student had to create an entire scene which included three different sources of light — a more realistic experience!

I asked Carson why his iPad was just floating in the air ... his response: "They threw it out the window because it wasn't working!" ... Of course! How silly of me :)

Next week we will take what we have learned about light and see how that can help us learn about shadows! Stay tuned 🙂
