Week 1 Lesson Objectives
What we did in class
This week, we read the story, Sounds In The Dark. In the story, Luke was in the dark and heard a bunch of noises. He had to find some light to discover what was making them. We discussed 'sound makers' and 'light producers' and identified those from the story.
Then we did some brainstorming and activities with light and sound to fill in a T-chart. We already have some great ideas about light and sound.
Literacies of Science
You will begin our new unit, Look! Listen! in your science journal this week. Scientists use journals, and we are all scientists.
Why do we use a science journal?
We use a science journal to record what we see, hear, feel and think so that we can look at it later to help us with our claims and evidence.
What does a science journal include?
A science journal includes dates and times. It might include written text, drawings, measurements, labelled diagrams, photographs, tables and graphs.
Why do we use a word wall?
We use a word wall to record words we know or learn about a topic. We display the word wall in the classroom so that we can look up words we are learning about and see how they are spelt.
What does a word wall include?
A word wall includes a topic title or picture and words which we have seen or heard about the topic.
In term 4, we will be exploring light and sound. Light and sound surround us every day and influence our lives in so many ways. I am sure you will find this unit fun and challenging. Use this website, to catch up on missed learning, show your parents what you are learning in science and access extra videos or science games I find for you.
