As we continue with our light unit we delve deeper.
How is sunlight different than inside light?
How do black lights work?
Why does light make it hard to see sometimes?
While I think these questions take more time and are hard concepts for even adults to grasp, it is amazing to see this level of interest being expressed at such a young age.
We started off a discussion on measurement under black light.
With help from the insides of some highlighter pens we made our water glow!
We also drew with highlighters on both black and white paper.
The children were excited to see their drawings under the black light.
Everyone was surprised to see how much brighter
the drawings were on the white paper.
