A-Maze-ing Mirrors: An introduction to light is a part of the Science Unlocked series of phenomenon-based curriculum kits and is an exciting experience for young scientists and engineers!
Students will engage in exciting activities such as:
- Making their own periscope
- Finding out what happens when light travels through prisms and colored cellophane
- Classifying objects based on how much light they let through
- Bouncing light off of mirrors around an obstacle in a Mirror Maze challenge
Inside of the box you will find a highly engaging full-color student curriculum workbook and teacher guide, with detailed step-by-step instructions for all hands-on activities, rich background information including important vocabulary, and suggestions for taking the learning to the next level. The experience is inquiry-based, meaning learners will practice their skills of observation, experimentation, problem-solving, analysis, evaluation, and reflection - skills that real-life scientists and engineers use! This kit requires almost no initial setup and provides approximately five hours (or more!) of learning and fun. Both the teacher and student can simply jump right in and do science!
The student will engage in these fun activities:
- Make a working periscope from the box the kit came in
- Use a prism to separate sunlight into all of the colors of the rainbow
- Change the color of light with cellophane
- Find out if materials are transparent, translucent, or opaque
- Make a light maze and use mirrors to bounce light around corners and send a message to the other side of an obstacle
