Simple Mirror Activity for Kids
Exploring Mirrors, Light & Reflection
Try a simple mirror activity for exploring reflections and light! Exploring reflections is an awesome classic science play for young learners! Please supervise as you fell comfortable!
SIMPLE MIRROR PLAY IS GREAT SCIENCE AND LANGUAGE PLAY
What is a mirror? What is reflection? What is light? Are there other surfaces that reflect. We looked around the house and he named quite a few including the heart on my silver necklace! Also have them look at themselves and describe what they see to you. Mirrors can be great for practicing and discussing emotions!
Preschool science ideas are for developing thoughts, questions and observations! Plenty of time to come for definitions and facts! Hands-on science play like our mirror play opens doors to critical thinking and language skills while having fun in a very hands-on play way!
SIMPLE MIRROR PLAY SCIENCE
For this simple mirror activity, we talked about reflection while we played around! He told me it is all about light bouncing around and bouncing back onto him! He enjoyed angling my little compact mirror with two sides so that he could examine each object. He also wanted shiny objects to shine his flashlight on to show the light bouncing off and onto him. We used the mirror and flashlight to make reflections on the wall and changed angles to see where we could get the light to hit!
