Reflection Obstacle Course

Unit 6: Light Energy
Lesson 5 of 11

Objective: Students will be able to use their knowledge of reflection to create investigations that will cause light rays to follow a determined path.

Big Idea: Understanding that light travels in a straight path and must reflect off of something in order to adjust its path is the big idea here. In a fun obstacle course style experiment, students will learn that the reflection angles are equal.
