Five activities that explore everyday examples of phenomena surrounding light. Experiments using mirrors, lasers, prisms and the colour wheel demonstrate refraction, reflection, diffraction, and the nature of the colour spectrum. Students play with light, creating rainbows with prisms, making periscopes, and using lasers to discover how light can be bent. Student will develop collaborative skills and the use of scientific language to explain this aspect of the natural world. Strands covered are the physical world and the nature of science.
