All about Light. Physical Science for Children[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
Most people certainly take light for granted. But understanding the basic nature of light can open up a whole new world! All about Light takes kids on a fun journey to answer questions like: "Why does light shine through some things and not others?" and "Why can we see our reflections in water, but not in a rock?" Students learn how light travels in waves as well as how those waves behave, including an introduction to the three main characteristics of light waves: amplitude, wave-length, and frequency. And children discover the connection between light and color. With real-life demonstrations and a hands-on activity, these concepts are more easily understood. This 23-minute videotape correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science--properties of objects and materials, position and motion of objects, and light, heat, electricity, and magnetism. The program includes a teacher's guide. (MM)
