Through investigation, learn about the mysterious world of light. What is white light? How does it behave through refraction and reflection?
- Light travels through waves.
- Use mirrors and lenses to explore refraction and reflection.
SCIENCE EDUCATOR demonstrations
- Newton colour wheel.
- How do our eyes work?
- Objects can be transparent or opaque.
- Using lasers with prisms and mirrors.
- Construct rainbow glasses to see how to break white light into colours.
- Investigate colour through the use of torches and coloured paddles.
- Using a jel ball to see how refraction works.
- Exploring the use of double mirrors to demonstrate the reflection of light.
POST WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES.
Yr 5-6 *Light from a source forms shadows and can be absorbed, reflected and refracted (ACSSU080)
*With guidance, pose clarifying questions and make predictions about scientific investigations (ACSIS231)
Yr 5-6 *Light from a source forms shadows and can be absorbed, reflected and refracted (VCSSU080)
*Light can form images using the reflective feature of curved mirrors and the refractive feature of lenses, and can disperse to produce a spectrum which is part of a larger spectrum of radiation (VCSSU105)
*Collaboratively and individually plan and conduct a range of investigation types, including fieldwork and experiments, ensuring safety and ethical guidelines are followed (VCSIS108)
*Communicate ideas and processes using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena and to identify simple cause-and-effect relationships (VCSIS088)
