Reflecting Light

We had a lot of fun today learning all about rays of light that are either reflected or absorbed. Why don't you ask your children at home if they know what this vocabulary means and the difference between the two?

 We conducted an experiment to see if objects with different surfaces/materials were less or more reflective. We came to the conclusion that materials and objects that are shiny are more likely to reflect light. Dark/dim materials were less likely to reflect, and more likely to absorb the light!

Have a look at the pictures of us exploring and conducting our investigation below.
