Light Table Inquiry

Haven-Taylor was interested in sorting the buttons.  She began sorting the buttons by placing them onto one her favourite books about cats.  She was sorting the buttons to match the colour of the cats.
 Soon many friends joined into Haven-Taylor's inquiry.

During the inquiry one of the buttons looked black on the light table, when they placed the button onto the book, it changed to white.  Haven -Taylor asked "Why does that happen?"
