Teachers Lesson Plans
Experimenting with light : Grade 9-12
Divide students into groups of three. Have each group experiment with a different type of light (candle, fluorescent and incandescent light, coloured light bulbs, halogen lights etc.).
Have each group select an object that they would like to illuminate and make a box, or find a small room or a dark closet in which to work.
Students should experiment with the different lights, changing the angle and type of light used in order to change the meaning and mood of each set-up.
Have students note the way each position of light changes the meaning of the space and the object. Take a digital snapshot of each set-up.
Have students download the images on the computer and present them to the rest of the class.)
