This photo teaching resource uses the photos featured in our 2014-15 Global Wallplanner. We chose the theme of Light because the year 2015 has been designated International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies by the United Nations.
Light is the ultimate source of life and energy for most living things on Earth. Our increased understanding of light and the electro-magnetic spectrum has resulted in important steps forward in development. This resource features 33 photos covering a wide range of light-related topics, with suggestions for teaching and learning activities, plus links to further information.
