This guide to a workshop or hands-on activities for primary teachers and possibly future physical science teachers. It provides an introduction to the concepts of light. It is designed to provide learners with an inquiry-based learning experience for the basic concepts of how light is created and observed. A particle model for light is used because the concepts are simpler than for a wave model. It is part of the Operation Primary Physical Science materials.
