Light reactions

In science class, students in Mrs. Paige Fuqua's first grade class at Mayfield Elementary School have been studying how light interacts with different materials. For this investigation, groups of students were given a basket of objects to test. They had to determine if each object was transparent, translucent, or opaque. In this picture, Wesley Lawson is seen demonstrating how a cardboard box is opaque because his hand cannot be seen through the box. Looking on are Janvi Patel (left) and Darien West (right). Pictured in the background, Yesenia Maldonado Jose and Devontae Douglas are performing the same investigation. Each student took turns testing different 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.
