In this activity, students will explore light travel and how it is redirected with the use of mirrors. Students will review how light is reflected by the objects it strikes. They will then create light illusions with mirrors and explain how they were designed.
Real World Science Topics:
- An evaluation of the properties of light including its movement
- The observation and experimentation of lights and mirrors and how they affect one another
After completing this activity, students should be able to describe the path of light as reflected by a mirror. Students should be able to explain how mirrors can be utilized to redirect light from objects and how to create illusions with light.
