Snapshot Science: The Optics Connection

October 23, 2011 at 8:03 PM Leave a comment

Had a blast at the California Science Teacher’s Association, sharing “Snapshot Science”. The student sheets are uploaded at this site.

In response to several requests, here are the sheets that link the physics of lenses, the eye, camera, microscopes and telescopes. These inquiry-based activities have been used with 7th grade and meet the light and optics standards. Students seem especially fascinated with their eyes, perception and seeing what lenses do to how they see the world. Materials needed are paper clips, small mirrors and plastic hand lenses. I hope you’ll enjoy doing these with your classes as much as we did at Orinda Intermediate School.
