IMAGERS - UNIT I : Understanding Light

This unit introduces students to the basics of light as a preface to understanding how remote sensing works. In Lesson 1, The Primary Colors of Light, students experiment with mixing colors of light to discover that the primary colors of light are red, green, and blue. They continue with Lesson 2's What Color is it? where they model how objects absorb and reflect colors of light. In Lesson 3 - Introducing the Electromagnetic Spectrum, students are introduced to different electromagnetic energy through the Electromagnetic Spectrum web site. This content is reinforced in the Wavestown activity. This unit prepares them for the Remote Sensing unit.
