collage of students in lab

Let's train your brain  with a dose of science from Mrs. Bon's 5th grade lab on the properties of light. Did you know...

- light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object?
- light can be reflected by using shiny surfaces?
- light can be refracted through water?

Ask a 5th grader how a penny appears to rise to the surface of water, how a pencil appears to have bent when placed in water, how water might magnify an object, and how light is changed to a rainbow on a wall with the use of light and a prism. They will know the answer! Are you smarter than a 5th grader?
