Lesson 5 -- Where do different colours come from?In this lesson, we will be learning how we can see different colours. We will apply our learning of reflection and refraction from previous lessons to understand how rainbows are made. At the end of the lesson there will be a chance to try creating your own rainbow by refracting light! You will need a piece of paper and a pencil for this lesson. If you would like to try making your own rainbow then you will also need a transparent glass of water or an old CD. You can still take part in the lesson if you do not have these items.
Lesson 6 -- What are some uses of light?In this lesson, we will learn some of the different uses of light. First, we will look at what a periscope is and how it works. Then, we will learn about the different kinds of lenses that help people to see. To finish our lesson, we will learn about shadow puppet theatres and make our own!
