Light it up Experiment

We also designed an experiment to measure which materials would allow light to pass through them.  Using a torch , we checked if the object allowed the light to pass through them completely ( transparent) , kind of see through ( translucent) or not allow light to pass through them ( opaque). Transparent, Translucent and Opaque were three new words that we learned from this experiment.

Look at the picture below and you can see us trying to see if the objects will allow light to pass through them.

Before we started the experiment, we made a guess or prediction regarding which material would allow light to pass through it.

 

 

 

 

Here are all our results below.

We learned that some materials are transparent, some are translucent and some are opaque.
