Can You See in the Dark?

Can You See in the Dark? invites students to wonder about whether or not people need light to see. The book details a search for a completely dark place, following the narrator from a movie theater to a closet to a dark campsite, finally ending in a cave where there truly is no light at all. This book introduces the idea that all light comes from a source, and that light is necessary for us to see. The book enables students to identify many different sources of light through its text and illustrations. Can You See in the Dark? provides an intriguing invitation to the Light Energy unit and poses a question that students will return to many times as they learn more about light and how people see.
