Big Bang Education’s Light and Sound program has been designed to help Year 1 teachers achieve the Australian Curriculum science understanding in Physical Sciences:
Light and sound are produced by a range of sources and can be sensed (ACSSU020).
It is an exciting, colourful and at times noisy introduction to the properties of Light and Sound.
Year 1 students will first experience an exciting science show which introduces them to the basics of sound and light, including the senses we use to detect sound and light; how to vary different characteristics of sound such as volume and pitch; and identifying different sources of light and sound in the world around us.
During the hands-on workshop that follows, students will explore how to compare the loudness and pitch of different instruments; experiment with different ways to make sounds using a range of familiar objects; and discover the colours that make up sunlight.
