Birthday Candles

by: Page Keeley

The purpose of this assessment probe is to elicit students’ ideas about how light travels. The probe is designed to find out if students know that light travels outward from its source, regardless of distance, until it interacts with an object that blocks it, reflects it, or allows it to pass through. The probe is provided in English and Spanish. This book selection includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, About the Author, and Index.
