If you’d like your students to see the physics around them, take advantage of those irritating cell phones and have them take photographs of physics phenomena. This is my new favorite thing because my students now see the world differently.
Students work in a cooperative group to photograph optical phenomena including refraction, diffraction, and reflection. They’ll find examples of images in things you’ve never noticed. Get ready to be impressed! This bundled product has a power point presentation to introduce the activity, student worksheet, and teacher directions. Look for my other physics and chemistry scavenger hunts on TPT.
