3 Top Tips for Teaching Refraction of Light — The Science Penguin
The 5th grade science TEKS ask students to differentiate between the reflection and refraction of light. Before addressing the differences between reflection and refraction, there are 3 things we do first to set students up for success.
3 TOP TIPS FOR TEACHING REFRACTION OF LIGHT
5th Grade: Refraction is the bending of light as it passes through different media (materials). This happens because light travels at different speeds through different media.

5 Phenomenal Ideas to Teach Light: Reflection and Refraction in 5th Grade — The Science Penguin
With small groups, I’ve reviewed reflection and refraction with a light hunt. I put a few items out around the room. After students visit and interact with those materials, they can add other items in the classroom. After we go over how light behaves with each of the items, we discuss the following question: What do the items in each group have in common? This helps us identify similarities and tendencies in each group.
