The Law of Reflection

In science today, we continued our learning about light. In our previous lesson, we focused on how we see, including recognising how light travels, how objects reflect light and about light sources. Today we explored how mirrors reflect light and how they help us to see objects. We also applied some of our geometry learning, measuring the angle of incidence and angle of reflection, as well as identifying the 'normal line' which was perpendicular to the mirror line. Check out the pictures below where we were proving the law of reflection!
