Levels: 3-4
Contextual strands: Physical world icon. Physical world


Seeing Colours develops themes treated in Light and Colour (Book 10 in this series.)

Light, and the visible energy spectrum of colour that makes up our experience of light, is an integral part of our physical existence. Because light is so easily observable, we can readily investigate its sources and patterns (including reflection and absorption) and consider how we receive and process the sensory information of light and colour.

The suggested activities include the use of fair testing.
