Catch The Color

Working with light always produces wonderful thinking strategies with the children. A teacher's inventive thinking in filling these tubes with colored water led to this experience.

The tubes are filled with colored water and stacked. When the light hits them, at first glance, the shadows appear to be black.

Sekora takes a tube and holds it close to the screen hoping to see an orange shadow.

After moving it in many different positions she finally finds one that catches the orange and lime green shadows!
Sekora holds the blue tube close to her face and a classmates shouts, "You're turning blue!"
