In this lab, we will be discussing Educational Law and researching current social and political issues in the Deaf community via The Daily Moth. Students will be attempting to match educational law acronyms, titles, and definitions by working together.
Students will review vocabulary words relating to food, using a game of Heads Up. Then, they will practice using those words with a card game that requires them to match words with the picture.
Students determine the refractive index of a liquid with a simple technique using a semi-circular hollow block. Then they predict the refractive index of a material (a Pyrex glass tube) by matching it with the known refractive index of a liquid using the percent light transmission measurement. The homemade light intensity detector uses an LED and multimeter, which are relatively inexpensive (and readily available) compared to commercially available measurement instruments.
