This module helps students develop the idea that by exploring the properties of light, we can create fun and useful things. During the study of light students will develop their science skills through inquiry, prediction, observation, exploration, discussion and recording. These lessons focus on students collaboratively problem solving, discovering and investigating to find answers and solutions. They will answer questions such as; what objects can be used to communicate over a distance? what happens when light is blocked or when materials of different kinds are placed in the path of a beam of light? Finally, apply properties of light to build a device that solves the problem of communicating over a distance.
