They draw a diagram of the electromagnetic spectrum and describe the wavelengths associated with each type of light. They end the lesson plan by showing how light is reflected by mirrors.

YES!!! LP is a quick place to get worksheets that I can use in my ESL classroom. I like that each lesson is identified by lesson or worksheet specific tabs for a quick reference when browsing.
