Are your students learning about light and how it travels? With the use of a few household items and a flashlight, students can explore the difference between objects that are transparent, translucent, or opaque.
Tips for use:
1. This activity can be done whole group or in small centers (NOTE...if using in small centers, you will need more of each item so that groups can work effectively)
2. I suggest standing up a folder and holding the item up to the folder when flashing the light on it, students are able to see the difference much easier
3. Don't forget to turn off the lights :)
