light table eye candy

Our class recently received this brand new tri-fold mirror. The decision to add this piece to the light table was a good one, as it drew students to the centre today.

The addition of this aesthetic element amps up the already beautiful colored blocks on the light table. I was bursting with excitement when students began stacking blocks on top of each other in order to mix the colors and create new hues of purple, orange, and yellow.

While this exploration only lasted a few minutes, other students soon came over and began using the blocks in other ways, such as balancing them on top of each other and building with them.

What would you add to keep the exploration of color mixing sustained?

What are your favourite light table additions?

Until next time,
