Video to create a magical sea scene with a flashlight
(You can find other similar videos online too)
It's totally dark out there and you can hardly see anything. However, a flashlight reveals a magical world so different from what we see during the day. This project was inspired by the picture book, "Flashlight" by Lizi Boyd. In it a child goes out at night with a flashlight and explores nature in the dark. The video lesson shares pages from this book and why we don't see colors in the dark. Students can then follow along to create the scene of a boy walking thru the woods, but can vary it as they wish with their imaginations! What will they find in their flashlight?
