Light and Sound Waves

These are some of the books and videos I'll be using to teach first graders about light and sound waves, as part of the Next Generation Science Standards.



Light Waves




















Abbie Burgess was the daughter of a lighthouse keeper along the rocky Maine coast.  In the 1850s, she heroically kept the lights burning during a month-long storm while her father was away.

This excellent biography of oceanographer Sylvia Earle includes information about sound and light waves in water.
