This activity prompts students to explore the physics of light, mirrors, and perception. Students will experiment using mirrors and their own reflections to solve a mystery introduced in a short, easily relatable brainteaser. This activity encourages participants to use trial and error to interrogate basic physics concepts. More challenges just like this one can be found in One Minute Mysteries: 65 Short Mysteries You Solve With Science. This book is available at a discounted price for Title 1 schools through the First Book Marketplace. Not your ordinary science book, these mysteries make science fun! Short literature-based brainteasers are a great way to get kids engaged in science.
