SIOP Lesson Plan Template 2

STANDARDS: Wave properties THEME: Introduction to light LESSON TOPIC: Why is the sky blue? OBJECTIVES: Language:
Students will be able to discuss vocabulary words in class with 100 percent accuracy. Students will be able to explain why the sky is blue with 0 percent accuracy.

Students will be able to explain basic che"ical and physical properties o# light. Students will be able to understand how light scatters in the at"osphere.

LEARNING STRATEGIES: $#ter providing a si"ple background into the che"istry and physics
behind light% we will discuss why the sky is blue using a si"ple step by step process.

KEY VOCABULARY: ato"% "olecule% ray% wave% wavelength% pris" MATERIALS: &owerpoint and &ris" MOTIVATION:
(Building background) $sk what color the sky is? 'iscover whether any "isconceptions about why the sky is blue exist by si"ply asking why is the sky blue?. 'eter"ine the a"ount o# background known on the vocabulary words by asking what the student thinks the words "ean be#ore the de#initions are given.

(Language and content objectives, comprehensible input, strategies, interaction, feedback) 1. (xplain light as a wave. $sk student what color is the sun when we look at it? Light as we see it is actually "ade o# all the colors o# the rainbow. &ris" activity. ). (xplain to student that "olecules can re#elct% absorb% or scatter di##erent colors o# light. *e#lections sends light back to where it ca"e #ro". $bsorbtion uses the lights energy to do so"ething. Scattering sends the light in all di##erent directions. $sk student W+$, IS $I* -$'( ./? (xplain that the "olecules in air scatter light with shorter wavelengths "uch "ore than larger wavelengths. $sk student what color light is scattered the "ost? We see the blue light above us because it is continually scatterred in the air.
