Online Activity Guidebook for Teachers

Activities written by educators with input from scientists, researchers, students, and teachers are provided here to help you and your students investigate light, optics, and color. Each activity has a teacher version followed by a separate student page. However, student pages can be easily adapted for use by children working with their parents, instead of a teacher. In fact, students, teachers, and parents are encouraged to work together to cooperatively explore new ideas, concepts, and ways of thinking. Then, after students achieve a better understanding of the basic principles and theories behind optics and related topics, they can explore them to advanced levels through the various features of the Molecular Expressions website.
