Science Lesson - How Light Behaves, Grade 1

  • Activity 1 / Light Reflections Worksheet

    Use this worksheet to teach your students that some objects have smooth flat surfaces that can reflect light very well. What this means is that all the light beams will bounce off of them. It is even possible to see our own reflections in these objects. Ask your students if they can give you some examples of objects where we can see our reflections. Then, look at the pictures with them and help them check off the objects that can reflect light and form a reflection.

  • Activity 2 / Transparent, Translucent, or Opaque Worksheet

    Before starting this exercise, it might be useful to remind your students what transparent objects, translucent objects, and opaque objects are. Transparent objects are those things that we can see through, translucent objects are not completely clear or transparent, but allow some light pass through them, and opaque objects completely block light from passing through them. Your students will need to look at the pictures in this worksheet and check off if each object is transparent, translucent, or opaque.

  • Activity 3 / How Light Travels Worksheet

    With this colorful worksheet, your students can learn more about the way light travels. They will learn that light beams travel in a straight line, and cannot go around corners. Students will need to look through the pictures and check off all the correct examples of how light travels.

Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!
