Pinhole Cameras



On Friday we made pinhole cameras. We use a paper cup, a rubber band and some wax paper. When we put it up to a light source, we could see the image upside down on the wax paper, just like how our eyes see!!
Mrs Corbett couldn't believe it worked! We then looked up on google how they work. Light travels in straight lines so when it passes through the pinhole it reflects on the wax paper upside down. It doesn't bend or flip itself over!
We had a great time :-)
