Yet another foldable...

We discussed the three buzz words transparent, translucent, and opaque. These words deal with the way the light reacts when it interacts with a material.

Transparent material allow light to pass directly through. If light can pass directly through it, we can see directly through it!
Translucent materials allow some light to pass through and reflects other light rays. These are materials that you can kind of see through, but won't see a clear image on the other side.
Opaque images don't allow any light to pass through. These are materials that we can't see through at all.

Leave a comment listing examples of each!

Just another creative day in Science!

  1. What did you use for translucent? It looks like wax paper!
