In this activity, students will match the beginning of the sentence with end of the sentence. The students must identify the key vocabulary definitions of reflect, refract, transmit, and absorb. Students must also identify examples of each.
Before class, I print the cards out on card stock. I cut them out and rubber band them, then reuse them every year. I often use this activity as a warm up or review at the beginning of class. I keep several answer keys, so students that finish quickly become expert checkers. With the help of student checkers, this activity can easily be finished in five minutes for the whole group. I also pull these cards out right before our state standardized test. They are a great review for topics we study at the beginning of the year.
