In our work of building with light, we invited the Tucker Class to join us. We left our building for them and then they responded to us, and we responded to them, and so on.
Here's a look at some of the back and forth creations:

Thoughts on light and reflection...
During meeting and lunch, children had thoughts to share about light and reflection. Some of these thoughts they return to over time, adjusting and adding to their thinking. For instance today children try to further define reflection, what it does/how it works, and what relationship exists between light and electricity.
Austin: "Reflection is on shiny stuff."
Grace M.: "Light is a kind of electricity but it's not. Half electricity and some is just not."
Jack (new to the conversation seems to add to Austin's thought by thinking about different perspectives): "If you're really down low and you're looking at something, it will get narrower and narrower."
Grace M: "Light is like electricity because it's hot."
Jack: "It can electrocute you."
Sally: "You know, lighting is light and it can burn you."
Sally: "Metallic things, like over there (points to faucet) the light shines on it and it makes a copy, like the window shines on it."
Sam, looking at the window with the children's rainbow art: "Once, when I was eating my lunch there was a rainbow on my hand. There was a rainbow in the window and on my hand."
Evelyn: "Did you know the sun is 100 degrees and it lights?"
