Exploratorium: Snacks About Light
To do a simple experiment with a convex lens, go to Exploratorium: Snacks About Light, scroll down to the bottom of the list of activities, and click on "Water Sphere Lens." Try using a fishbowl of water as a lens. You can do the same activity with a magnifying glass, but be sure NOT to look through the magnifying glass into a bright light, or into the sun.
