Following the inquiry of “How are we connected to the ocean?”, the year 1 students at Al-Hidayah Islamic School discovered so many facts about the layers of the deep blue ocean.
They researched about the deep sea creatures and wrote informative texts about these interesting creatures from each ocean layer.
During this Science Week, the students also shared the learning experiences with the Specialist teachers about the “Father of Modern Optics: Ibn al-Haytham”, the Muslim scholar and Physicist who made important contributions to the understanding of vision, optics and light. His discovery enabled the scientist to discover the different types of sea creatures in the deep blue sea.
“Or (they are) like darkness’s within an unfathomable sea which is covered by waves, upon which are waves, over which are clouds – darkness’s, some of them upon others. When one puts out his hand (therein) he can hardly see it. And he to whom Allah has not granted light – for him there is no light.” (Surah Nur ayah 40)
