Light Strikes! shows light interactions in real-life situations. Students are invited to look at ordinary scenes and observe how light is interacting with materials, sometimes in unexpected ways.
The book reinforces concepts about reflection, absorption, and transmission.
It helps students make connections between the science they are learning and their everyday lives, and to be aware of the role light is playing when they see shadows on a wall, notice reflections in a window, or put on their favorite pair of sunglasses.
