Light and Optics Exploration Demo Lesson Plans

The demonstration lesson plans were written to accompany the “Light and Optics Exploration Kit”. It consists of 15 richly-illustrated demonstrations that can be used in the classroom to bring awareness, excitement, and the aspiration to learn more about the science of light, lasers and optics. 

Each demonstration starts with information on preparation and execution time enabling the teacher to plan the lesson appropriately. Then, the purpose of the demonstration follows with the learning objectives, materials needed, background information, procedure, summary, assessment, and bibliography.  A new feature of this edition is the K-12 STEM Relevance section, which lists the Florida or the National Science Standards relevant to each lesson plan.  

These demonstrations and lesson plans were written with the assumption that the teacher has no previous background in light or optics, with plenty step-by-step instructions, and a lot of colorful pictures and diagrams.
