Learning About Light

English Class fourth graders have been learning about the properties of light in their environmental studies classes with Mr. Gregg. They  created nifty hexagonal foldables to help learn some of the terms like prism, refraction and reflection, for example.  Another neat hands-on activity was creating two different types of rainbow spectrum spinners. One spinner type had a pencil poked through the centre of the coloured cardboard disc. The other spinner type was threaded on a loop of string. In the video clip below you can see the latter type in action.

As one fourth grader wrote in her spelling notebook for the word interesting, “Mr. Gregg’s environmental studies classes are interesting.”
