In this activity, students are introduced to an analogy through a role-play that helps them visualise the refraction of light. The analogy explains why light bends when it enters or exits transparent materials and also why a prism separates white light into a colour spectrum.
By the end of this activity, students should be able to:
- explain why light bends when entering and exiting a material
- explain why a prism breaks light into a spectrum.
