If you're teaching Optics, you know there are so many different topics to cover: the EM Spectrum, light production, reflection, ray diagrams for curved mirrors, refraction, total internal reflection, converging and diverging lenses, the eye, and vision problems - that's a lot. This set of task cards covers them all.

This is part of my cost-saving, amazing Physics Bundle!

Here is a bundle of 68 Optics task cards, use these as entrance tickets, exit tickets, bell ringers, and test review.

What’s included in the zipped folder?

17-page PDF with 4 task cards per page

68-page PDF with 4 of the same task cards (easy printing for bell ringers)
