We turned out all the lights and put black paper over the windows so that the only sources of light were our torches, light table and overhead projector. Then the exploration began! During the course of the day we played and experimented with prisms, transparent stones and paper, flashlights, lamps and much, much more.
We read books in the dark and listened to music in the dark. We even enjoyed a candlelight lunch!
Abulkhair: "I wonder how does the flashlight make light?"
Amira: "I wonder why things are more colourful (in the light)"
Aubrey: "I wonder how you can see light through transparent things"
Julian: "I wonder how you can make a shadow"
Kili: "I wonder how a flashlight would look through a diamond"
