Light tables as part of inquiry and discovery
Light tables are great teaching tools that can enhance visual intrigue, collaboration and enthusiasm for learning in the classroom.
Students can explore shapes, insects, and leaves using a light table. Studying insects and leaves on the light table highlights unique characteristics that would be difficult to see without a lit background. The students can discover things about the wings on a dragonfly that they had never expected - students can see the tiny patterns and lines on the wings.
