WS1115: Learning How Light Works: Reflection
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce K-12 teachers and those who are interested in providing optics outreach to a make-and-take kaleidoscope activity which will teach students about one of the basic properties of light, reflection. Kaleidoscopes are engaging devices that create amazing images using multiple reflections, and this workshop provides step by step instructions for assembling a kaleidoscope and illustrates how multiple reflections lead to the patterns observed in a kaleidoscope. By using the mirrors within the kaleidoscope and a few basic lessons, students will understand the law of reflection. The workshop has been developed to align with the newly published Next Generation Science Standards and is appropriate for use at the Elementary Level 4-PS4-2: Waves: Waves and Information (4-PS4-2) or can also be used for Middle School students for MS-PS4-2: Waves and Electromagnetic Radiation. Each participant will receive a kaleidoscope kit to assemble during the workshop.
