Where does light come from? What makes things shiny?

Students identify different sources of light, and explore how shiny objects can also appear bright by reflecting light. They then apply their knowledge during an interactive adventure story.

Students also use our light boxes and a range of materials for a more playful exploration of light, this provides the opportunity to deepen understanding and practise using scientific vocabulary.
