Transparent or Opaque?


Today, I would like you to watch the video all about light again... but this time, I want you to focus on the section that talks about objects being transparent and opaque.


First, answer the following questions:  What makes an object transparent?  What makes an object opaque?  What does an opaque object create if you shine a light on it?


Then, I would like you to search your house for objects that are transparent and opaque.  Your challenge is to find an object that is partly transparent and partly opaque.


Finally, I would like you to create a Venn diagram (example of one below) that sorts your objects in to opaque and transparent.  Any objects that are both will go in the middle!
