In this inquiry activity, students will explore some properties of light and sound. Through student created models and investigations about how light and sound travel, inventions which use light and sound, and natural sources of light, they will explore how light and sound is used in modern day industries. Communication skills will be developed through a poster showcasing an ancient invention which uses light or sound, soundscapes for picture books, and a guided reading of a First Nation legend. They will showcase their learning by creating an invention which uses light or sound.
