Light Energy: Reflection and Refraction
Using a flashlight, prism, mirror, and piece of black paper, create a path of light on your table, as shown in this picture.
Log in to your class's Seesaw account. Take a picture of the setup you built in step #1. Use the color yellow to draw the path of light on the picture. Use different colors to label where light is reflected, refracted, and absorbed. Turn it in. (Click the ? for a reminder about reflection, refraction, and absorption.)
Reflection: when light bounces off objects. Refraction: when light bends. Absorption: when light is taken in (absorbed). (Click the link below for pictures about reflection and refraction.)
