Teach your young students about the different light sources. Allow them to explore a room specifically crafted for learning about light and dark. Which gives out a stronger light source? The candle? The lamp? What about the sun? What is the difference between viewing a room with a stronger light, versus a weaker one?
Once the children have finished with their experiments, it’s time for a quiz! What have they learned as they played? And what other common and practical knowledge can they learn about light sources? Why not play the game and find out?
