HS504 : Optics exposure & learning lenses purpose

I am getting more Science learning of late, carefully planned for Hanafi eversince his previous Kindergarten failed to expose Science in their syllabus (one of the reason we stopped his schooling).

Hanafi (even baby Hambali) always fascinated with his (their) parents wearing glasses. I told Hanafi that both his Mama & Papa is far-sighted (rabun) & it is very crucial for us to wear a SPECTACLE so that we can see better. As for his Mama, daytime wearing CONTACT LENSES of course which already being explained to him the functionality still the same like Spectacles. This point onwards, I told him that it is important for him to takecare his eyes well so habit like watching television very near and reading in the dark is a complete No-No.

Later, I found a great idea from Mommy2H on using MAGNIFYING GLASS, so I printed out those magnifying pictures from the former site & gotten a cheap magnifying glass.

Here’s what Hanafi been doing exactly following what featured in the Mommy2H site. There were 2 sets of pictures, one is the normal pic & the other is microscopic size, so what a child must do is to use the magnifying glass to peer at the tiny pic & find the same pic by the normal size. Match it!

We moved on to BINOCULARS function and from our recent outing, Hanafi managed to grasp the idea of using a binoculars.

Next is KALEIDOSCOPE. I think this is the apparatus Hanafi enjoyed most in the Optics group. We got the Kaleidoscope from one shop selling Early Childood & Educational items in The Summit.

Lenses are everywhere & have a pupose. Ask your child if he can figure out what lens is use to…

1. Show a big picture on a screen?
2. See things that are far away?
3. See very small things?
4. See in the dark?
5. Capture images of things to see later
6. Correct poor vision?

Answer Options:
a) Telescope
b) Night vision goggles
c) Camera
d) Projector
e) Glasses
f) Microscope

As always, find every opportunity to expose Science learning for your lil one.

  7. pss…melihat TV dari jarak dekat selalunya bukan penyebab rabun tapi ia mungkin sekali simptom (penunjuk) bahawa budak itu rabun. Jarak yang dicadangkan utk menonton TV adalah 3 meter… he he…
