Light and Shadows

Miniclips

Have your students ever wondered why they can create shadows on a sunny day but not when it's cloudy? Or why they can see through windows but not walls? What does light have to do with all of this anyway!? This animated Miniclip examines the behaviour of light when it comes into contact with transparent, translucent, or opaque materials. Using these three types of materials, it shows why some create shadows and why others don’t. It also provides a brief introduction to reflection and refraction using mirrors and water.
