Reflected Glory
Forster, Colin
Primary Science Review, n93 p20-21 May-Jun 2006
The scientific model of how people see things is far removed from children's real-world experience. They know that light is needed in order to see an object, but may not know that light is reflected off the object and some of that light enters the eyes. In this article, the author explores children's understanding of reflection and how to develop it. (Contains 2 figures.)
