I wish I could give you dimensions and cut to my request. Sizes are just a bit small for my classroom.

I ordered these small mirrors for a light refraction lesson. Two of these mirrors, taped end to end were the perfect size for my 3rd graders. They are reasonably priced and sturdy-perfect for a science center!

I was so happy to find these mirrors. The Center for Innovation in Education in California no longer makes them. Bob Baratta-Lorton (owner) was kind enough to send me instructions on how to make them but it was even better to be able to purchase them from you. Thank you.

Mirrors were cheap, thin, plastic with untrimmed edges....and not the quality I expected. Shipping charges were too high for the weight/size of package.

distortion

Too flexable for my application. Suggest the thickness of the plexiglass to be doubled so as to prevent so much distortion.
