Mystery Balloon Pop

 Mystery Balloon Pop - Grades 3-9
 
Students work in pairs to explore how a magnifying glass can be used to pop balloons! They will also explore whether the color of the balloon matters! White balloons reflect light whereas dark balloons absorb light and pop more readily. Students can explore how different colors respond to converging light rays as well.
