Description:

This resource is a standards-based curricular unit for grades 7-8 designed to introduce students to the composition of light. It includes detailed lesson plans for eight classroom activities in which students build their own spectroscopes, gather data about light sources, analyze patterns and fingerprints, learn to read light intensity graphs, and use data they collect online to explore Saturn and Titan. Each lesson contains worksheets, warm-up questions, vocabulary lists, safety guidelines, and assessments. This resource is part of the TeachEngineering digital library, which provides teacher-tested lessons designed to connect real-world experiences with curricular content in the K-12 science/math classroom.
