A curriculum that is specifically designed to meet the STEM requirements. This module presents projects and explorations in Light and its various forms. As with all STEM based curriculum it incorporates open-ended enquiry, and is completely project based.
Aimed at lower elementary, this curriculum contains explorations for each level, prompting children to have in-depth conversations based on a spiraled set of explorations.
The accompanying teacher's notes/manual is carefully designed to give enough information and guidance in how to present the lesson that teachers immediately feel comfortable in presenting the fundamental concepts.
Includes experiment cards and Teacher's Manual. Concepts touched on are as follows:
- NGSS and CC Standards
- Historical figures

- Properties of Light
- I Spy
- Light Communication
- Light Spectrum
- Mixing Pigment
- Stained Glass
- Mixing Pigment vs Mixing Light
