Students can use the Mysterious Glowing Ball to make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.
Students can use the Mysterious Glowing Ball in an investigation to develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Students can use the Mysterious Glowing Ball in an investigation to develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.
Students can use the Mysterious Glowing Ball to develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
Students can use the Mysterious Glowing Ball to conduct investigations and use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
Students can use the Mysterious Glowing Ball to conduct investigations about technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit.
When held stationary, the Mysterious Glowing Ball appears to glow with white light. When spun in a circle by the cord, one can see the white light separate into blinking red, blue and green lights.
