Interactive, Lesson Plan

Description:

Students will understand that elements emit light in a distinct spectrum that can be used to identify the elements and that this information can be used to identify the composition of complex light sources like stars.Students will expand on their understanding of the visible light spectrum.

A lab provides students with the opportunity to investigate the properties of spectroscopes and uses spectroscopes to investigate a variety of light sources.
