This lab activity includes three investigations that enlighten students as they explore the many unique properties of light. Using the physical science framework concepts of Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions (PS2) and Energy (PS3), students explore the properties of white light, build and investigate primary color wheels, and research the straight line motion of light.

This kit aligns with all published National Standards. Pre and post-laboratory assessments and vocabulary words all target specific Science and Engineering Practices and Common Core standards. The teacher guide also contains specific "Did You Know" concepts that link the real world with the scientific standards explored. This kit includes enough materials for a class of 30 students.
