As promised in my previous post, here is the slideshow for the topic on Characteristics Of Light which is covered in the KSSR syllabus in Chapter 6 of the Standard 5 Science textbook for SJKC. I prepared this for my boy but feel free to use this with your kids.
I have done the slides in two languages, English and with Mandarin translation (I used google translate, pleco and other translation apps to translate the words since I don't know Chinese). I have also included the pinyin. This is because I don't know Chinese and my boy's Chinese is not very good. So, this is helpful for us. Please note that the Chinese and pinyin serve merely as a general guide to us and may not be hundred percent accurate since I am relying on translation software and books, not from personal knowledge of Mandarin Chinese.
I have tried to follow the textbook as closely as possible so that it is more relevant for the Year 5 students. You will find this very useful because it is not easy to find bilingual material that closely follows the school KSSR Year 5 Science syllabus.
The topics include:
- How Light Travels
- Formation Of Shadows
- Reflection Of Light
- Applications Of Reflection Of Light
- Refraction Of Light (Refraction of Light was not previously covered in the KBSR syllabus so if you get an old workbook, you may not find this part included)
