4.9.10: Recognize that light can be bent (refracted) and that such objects as aquaria, prisms and lenses can be used to show that light beams can be bent.
CT?: When does light bend?
Refraction: When light is bent as it moves through one kind of matter to another. (matter: anything that has mass and takes up space. In other words - everything that is around you)
Reflection: to give back or show an image of an object (mirror). Light reflects or "bounces" off the surface of an object.
Activity: Reflection/Refraction interactive notebook
