Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

HS-ESS1-2

The students will be using a website simulation that deals with light spectra. They can manipulate the simulation to see differences in wavelengths, temperature, color, and peak intensity. Another part of the lab deals with using spectra glasses with various light sources to see the spectral lines that are given off.
