Physics First: Nature and Behavior of Light UnitsOptics ("appearance" in ancient Greek) includes the behavior and properties of light and its interaction with matter. The study of optics includes understanding the behavior of visible, infrared and ulMolecular Expressions: Light, Prisms, and the Rainbow ConnectionThis multimedia lesson/activity integrates a hands-on prism lab, a Java simulation on light refraction, and an historical vignette on Isaac Newton's classic study of prisms.It is appropriate for middle and high school, and can be adapted for more advanced students by extending the study to the Refractive Index and the visible light spectrum.Overall, a nicely cohesive introduction to prepare students for further study of rainbows.OpenWebsiteItem Type: Multimedia LessonLevel: Grades 6-9Duration: One Class Period Explorations in OpticsIf your students think studying optics would be boring, wait until they try building their own spectroscopes and watching light refract through Jello Jigglers.This resource is a set of 16 low-cost lesson/labs designed as an overview of the behavior of light.For the 9th grade physical science class, try the explorations on light spectra, reflection, and refraction.For more advanced students, we suggest the labs on diffraction, polarization, and fluorescence.The lens labs would be appropriate for both.OpenWebsiteActivities:Exploratorium: Snacks About LightSan Francisco's Exploratorium Museum has comp
