With the increased emphasis on physical science in NGSS, elementary teachers are looking to expand their repertoire of experiences in this content area that are related to the standards and easy to implement. This book contains ten experiments using common subjects to which children can relate such as kaleidoscope, hall of mirrors, and pinhole camera.

The author includes materials needed, age–appropriate, step–by–step directions, photographs, and a conclusion of how the experiment worked. There is also a glossary section and section listing other resources on light. This book could be included in classroom and school libraries for use with science fair projects.
