Pre-emptive Tasks for Teacher

Teacher will prepare the stations prior to lesson


Teacher will ensure that all handouts are prepared
Teacher will ensure that all concepts from the stations match the
concepts on the test.

PROCEDURE
Introduction (X min.)

Begin class by gathering the students attention and stating that the
test is the next day. Have the student helpers handout the passports
and explain that they are to complete it as they move through the
stations.
Explain how the movement from station to station will operate.
Transition into power point presentation and explanation of activities
(see body).
Body (40 min.)

Learning Activity #1: How light travels


Have the cardboard paper pre-established with plasticine on the
corners and the holes punched in the top.
Have the students shine the light through the cards and observe it hit
the back card.
Once they have the light through all cards, have the students move
the second card.
After the students have completed the activity, have them record
their observations through the questions on their passport.
Learning Activity #2: Translucent, transparent, or opaque
Have 5 objects that are transparent, translucent, and opaque at the
station with the flashlight.
Have the students flash the light on the object and record as to which
category the object belongs to in their chart.
Learning Activity #3: Movement of shadows
Have a pre-determined figurine placed in the middle of a blank piece
of paper. On the paper have the page labeled with the directions
North, East, West, and South.
Have the students flash the light on the figurine at the position where
the sun rises, then the middle of the day, and finally where the sun
sets.
On their observation sheets have the students record their
observations and answer the questions on their sheets.
Learning Activity #4: Measuring shadows
Have a pencil upright in plasticine placed 10cm in front of a piece of
cardboard paper that free stands due to plasticine on its corners. Have
a flashlight placed at 15cm away from the pencil. Under the flashlight
have a piece of paper with the points of 10cm and 20cm labeled for
guide points in the lesson.
Have the students move the flashlight to the marked points on the
paper. Once the students have moved the flashlight, have them

record their observations in their passport and observation charts


while answering the questions.
Learning Activity #5: Labeling the eye
Students will label the interactive eye on the smart board.
Once the activity is finished, the students will draw their best drawing
of an eye in their passport.
Closure (2 min.)

Review the questions with the students, while going over their
observations and answers to questions
Have students return the desks and place sheets in their folders. Have
the students return their folders to the front of the room.

Quiz Review
In this review we will examine the previous lessons and activities that we did so far in the
light and shadows unit. The review will examine key concepts of light and shadow to
prepare you for the following test.
You will work in your groups through the stations and move to the following stations when
instructed by the teacher. When you move to another station, please ensure to put the
materials back in the order they were in before the activity.
Directions:
Station #1- How light travels
1. Set the cards with plasticine on the corners in order, while having the card without
aa hole punched in it be the last card in the row.
2. Shine the light through the holes in the cards so that the light hits the back card
while going through all the cards. Record your observations in your passport.
3. Move the second card in the sequence and record your observations in your
passport.
Station #2- Translucent, Transparent, or Opaque
1. Shine the light through each object at the station (outlined in observation chart).
As you shine the light through the object, record your observations in the
observation chart.
2. Answer the questions associated with your observations.
Station #3- Movement of Shadows
1. Place the figurine in the middle of the piece of paper.
2. Shine the flashlight at the point where the sun would rise. Record your observation
in your passport.

3. Continue by shining the light at the point where the sun would be in the middle of
the day and then where the sun would set. Record your observations in your
passport.
4. Answer the questions for the activity.
Station #4- Measuring shadows
1. Begin by placing the flashlight (on edge of textbook) at the 15cm point on the sheet
of paper. Observe what the shadow looks like at this point.
2. Move the light to the 10cm point on the piece of paper and then record how the
shadow looks and record your observations in your chart.
3. Move the light to the 20cm point on the piece of paper and then record how the
shadow looks and record your observations in your chart.
4. Complete the questions in your passport.
Station #5- Labeling the eye
1. Complete the activity on the SMART board with your group.
2. Once your group has completed the activity, draw your best version of an eye in
your passport.
