Light Leaves
An Activity for Preschoolers:
This is a great activity where children can explore how light shines through different types of leaves.

Before You Begin:
Set up a light box on an activity table making sure that it’s plugged in in a manner that will prevent children from tripping on the cord.

Activity Goals:
Discover how light enhances the viewing of objects
Learn about transparency

The light table and magnifying glasses may be used for viewing many other objects.

Take a walk outside and gather a variety of leaves.
Place the leaves on the light table and record what you see.
Use the magnifying glasses for a closer look at the veins in the leaves.
Place additional objects on the light table and have a conversation about what you see.
