This resource was created using the lodeStar Presenter (http://www.lodestarlearning.com/). The first resource is an nice interactive crossword utilizing vocabulary having to do with light. Students are able to check their results and get immediate feedback. The second presentation is very brief and goes through observations and explanation of the simple refraction demo of an object partly submerged in water. As far as accessing the files, the easiest way to access the files is to press "start" rather than downloading the files. (Although lodeStar is a PC-only program, its output can be played in any environment that supports Macromedia Flash.) These presentations could be a nice multimedia supplement to an existing curriculum on light.
