Garden Spies

Students will observe wildlife and analyze images in the garden by making and using periscopes and other image-capturing devices which work because of light reflection and refraction of angles. Students can also create hyperlapse videos using cameras or smartphones. Infragram is an online tool for analyzing plant health with near-infrared imagery.

Concepts: Light Refraction

Essential Questions

  • How can I bend, reflect, and refract light by building tools I can use to capture images in the garden?
