From switching on a lamp to seeing the sun rise in the morning, we experience light every day, but what exactly is light? In this title, students will have the opportunity to conduct experiments to help them understand what light is, how it travels, and how we see it. Kids will also investigate concepts such as what causes shadows to form, and how white light is made up of a mixture of different colors. Using everyday items that kids can easily find around the house, students will transform into scientists as they carry out step-by-step experiments to answer interesting questions. Along the way, children will pick up important scientific skills as they investigate light, record their observations, and draw conclusions. Light includes seven experiments with detailed, age-appropriate instructions, surprising facts and background information, a "Conclusions" section to pull all the concepts in the book together, and a glossary of science words. Colorful, dynamic designs and images truly put the FUN into FUN-damental Experiments.
