Today in science we talked about how light travels in a straight line. We also created pin hole cameras to mimic how light enters the eye. The hole is like the pupil which lets the light from an object enter the eye, the wax paper acts like a retina. This shows them that if the brain did not use the eye's nerve signals to make a right-side-up image, we would see the world upside-down. Homework this weekend: - home reading - please read to your child - WITW if not complete - map due Monday - practice lines and songs for the play - Secret Santa gifts in by Dec. 17 for those participating Have a great weekend!
