Properties of light with Gummy Bears

Using a red laser, students will explore how red, green and clear bears reflect, transmit and absorb light. The lab is inquiry based, with students creating the hypothesis, materials, procedure and conclusion. Students should have prior knowledge of reflection, transmission and absorption. I supply students with the problem "How does light behave in different colored bear?", students complete the rest with their groups.
