Blocking out the light

Today we challenged ourselves to make a lightproof den.

We soon found out that to make darkness we would have to block out all the light and that light could get into the smallest gaps.

Which den do you think kept out the most light?

    • I like the word epic Daniel. It was a great lesson for me – I didn’t have to do anything apart from admire the inventiveness of my class. You’re all engineers in the making.

  1. Well done everyone. I can see everyone working very hard on the experiment to block out light. Well done 3P. 😎😎😎😎

    • Yes, we found out a material has to be opaque to block out the light.

      If you were going to make a light proof den again, what material would you use?

      (Opaque means you can’t see light through it)

    • Yours was a difficult material Joshua, I think you did a fantastic job. It’s a shame that sneaky light manages to get through even the tiniest holes.

  2. Interesting lesson watching all of you create different ways of finding out which material was best to block out light. Well done 3P.

  3. THE CARD BOARD AND BIN BAGS BLOCKED OUT THE LIGHT.I USE FLIPCHART TO MAKE MY DEN. NEXT TIME I WILL USE CARDBOARD TO MAKE MY DEN.
