Looking for LIGHT!

In support of room 2’s light project… we took a walk around our community so as to find and photograph different sources of light. The children found quite a few on their own and were very eager to have their turn at becoming photographers. In addition, we discussed natural light and where it came from. To further these discussions, we observed a large pond that had many different reflections and lots of “bouncing” light…

 

In the sky…

 

The sky is very bright today, I wonder if that is light shining through…

Ashlynn: Yeah!

Mayte: It’s in the air.

 

Street light…

 

Ashlynn: You can follow the street.

Mayte: So it not dark.

 

Car lights…

 

Yeshua: To go to work.

Mayte: For dark to go here.

 

Lights on the building…

 

Mayte: For the dark and when you go out and in.

 

Sign lights…

 

Mayte: I found a light!

Yeshua: Yeah, I found a light back there.

Ashlynn: It’s a big, giant “hulo” light.

 

*We stopped and looked at the reflections and light coming off of the pond. There wasn’t yet a large understanding of reflection or how the light bounces off of the water (or other things). This might be a good direction to move in to further understandings and making connections to prior knowledge!
