Product Details

Students explore the basic principles of reflection and refraction as they investigate properties of visible light in this series of three hands-on experiments: Plane Mirror, Refraction of a Transmitted Light and Multiple Images. As students rotate from one lab station to the next, they use a plane mirror to discover the law of reflection, investigate the refraction of transmitted light and explore multiple images created by two mirrors set at various angles. The activity-stations format allows more labs to be completed in less time, with each activity designed to take 12–15 minutes to complete. Teacher notes with sample data, prelab and post-lab questions and answers, and materials to perform each activity are supplied.

All materials are completely reusable—a great value! Complete for 9 student groups.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Cocktail picks, plastic, 6
Corks, size 1, 12
Mirror, 2" x 4", 9
Pins, dissection, 6
Plastic dish, half-hemisphere, 3
Plastic mirror support, 9

Performance Expectations

MS-PS4-2. Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
HS-PS4-3. Evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described either by a wave model or a particle model, and that for some situations one model is more useful than the other.
