Light and Dark by Louise Spilsbury, Richard Spilsbury


Light and Dark by Louise Spilsbury, Richard Spilsbury

This book looks at the differences between light and dark. Darkness is the absence of light. You can make a dark box to show how we need light to see. Experiment using ice cubes in boxes to show that dark colours absorb more sunlight than light colours. You can look at how some animals have evolved to see in the dark using other senses and try it out yourself! And much more!
