Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen. 4-PS4-2
Clarification Statement: none
Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include knowledge of specific colors reflected and seen, the cellular mechanisms of vision, or how the retina works.
Developing and Using Models
Modeling in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to building and revising simple models and using models to represent events and design solutions.
Develop a model to describe phenomena. (4-PS4-2)
An object can be seen when light reflected from its surface enters the eyes. (4-PS4-2)
Cause and Effect
Cause and effect relationships are routinely identified. (4-PS4-2)
More resources added each week!
A team of teacher curators is working to find, review, and vet online resources that support
the standards. Check back often, as NSTA continues to add more targeted resources.

From TeachEngineering - In this activity, students construct their own pinhole camera to observe the behavior of light.
From TeachEngineering - Student groups rotate through four stations to examine light energy behavior: refraction, magnification, prisms and polarization. They see how a beam of light is refracted (bent) through various transparent mediums. While lear...
