Pupils got the opportunity to consolidate their learning about light and reflection by constructing periscopes and designing them with key words about periscopes. They researched the practical uses of periscopes since they were first created in 1854 by Marié-Davy, who invented the first naval periscope, consisting of a vertical tube with two small mirrors fixed at each end at 45°, just like the ones constructed in class today.
