This resource is a great performance assessment for students to demonstrate their knowledge on one of the concepts of light: reflection. Using two mirrors which are supplied by the teacher (see how to get mirrors for cheap in the teacher notes), students will design and create their own periscope using the criteria in their homework page. The teacher just needs to explain the assignment and criteria which is on the student homework assignment and distribute the mirrors. On the day the periscope is due, students will give a mini-presentation on their periscope and demonstrate the working periscope. A rubric is also included for easy grading. This is a great homework assignment and assessment that my students enjoyed!
