Mirror diagrams can be confusing to students, but this foldable and bundled lesson will put all the information in one place and at their fingertips! The lesson covers plane, convex, and concave spherical mirrors with ray diagrams and characteristics. This is a 2-3 period lesson depending on how you chose to use it.
This lesson comes with a power point presentation with or without CLOZE notes, a student foldable, teacher version of the foldable, teacher instructions, a crossword puzzle to reinforce vocabulary, and a bonus quiz/worksheet with answers if you want to do the associated calculations.
The 36 slide power point has animations of ray diagrams and lots of images and examples. The lesson takes 120 minutes including making the foldable and doing the crossword puzzle, about 150 minutes with the problem set if you choose to use it.
