Light SOS

Topic: Light

Recently, a group of children stranded under the Dover cliffs at night had to use their mobile phones as beacons to guide the rescue services to them. Your class will roleplay a similar scenario and use their understanding of the way light travels to try and guide helicopters to rescue them � before the tide comes in!

This is just one of a range of fun activities in this resource that you can pick and choose from to reinforce and expand children�s understanding about light. Children can warn of the coming Spanish Armada, zap aliens to protect the planet earth, and build periscopes to see over WW1 trenches!
