Flashlight Science: Transparent or Opaque?
Young children love playing with lights and shadows. Although many children (and adults!) may be frightened by the dark at night, having a flashlight seems to be all of the protection they need. Kids love playing games with flashlights like flashlight tag, flashlight reading, etc. Here is another fun activity with a flashlight your child can try out and while he's at it, he can learn about objects that are transparent, translucent, and opaque.
What You Need:
- White paper
- Shapes cut from cardboard (square, triangle, star, and circle)
- Spring-type clothespin or strong paperclip
- Objects made of transparent, translucent and opaque materials ( See Step 8)
