Description:

In this activity (page 2 of PDF), learners play with a lens and a piece of paper to focus an image on the paper. Learners look at different things, and see how the lenses affect the image. The "Going Further" section includes some background info about how this lens is similar to how a camera lens works, and how our eye works. The fact that the image is upside down is compensated in our eye by our brain!
