        Making Predictions about Reflection and Absorption

        Teacher Nadine Coletta helps her sixth-grade class make predictions about light reflection and absorption in this video segment from Teaching Middle School Physical Science. First, she asks students to write down their predictions about which of two colored objects will absorb or reflect more. Then she has them discuss their ideas as a group. Coletta explains that making predictions helps students draw on what they already know and understand the experiment in its proper context.
