Students in Paige Fuqua's first grade class at Mayfield Elementary have been studying how
light interacts with materials. For one activity, groups were given a basket of objects to test. They had to determine if each object was transparent, translucent, or opaque. Wesley Lawson (pictured) demonstrates how a cardboard box is opaque because his hand cannot be seen through the box. Student took turns testing objects and then discussing among themselves the results. This was a great interactive activity that kept the students engaged in learning. The students always enjoy hands-on activities.
