There are 3 main activities: Read.Connect.Create.

Vocabulary:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Reading:
Next, have students read the informational articles about light and sound and complete the graphic organizers for each concept. Each article has comprehension questions and scenes for students to connect to the information. There are 3 character studies where students will meet important people who greatly influenced our world: Sir Isaac Newton, Alexander Graham Bell, and Albert Einstein. There are also biography organizers for reviewing or additional research. Have students complete the comprehension and connection questions, label the parts of the human eye and ear, mystery flaps, and cloze passages. Students could work with a partner, in small groups, or even as a center/station activity to read and complete the activities.

Activities:
Have students complete the Light and Sound Flip-Up Booklet. Students can build the flip-up book page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the flip-up. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12×18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
