Step 1: 1. Cathode of Light Needs to Be Facing You When You Add It on to the Bread Board Like So
Step 2: 2. Continue With Adding 330 Ohms Resistors to the Bread Board Like So.
Step 3: 3. All You Need to Add With the Resistors Is a Black Wire Going From the Second Leg of the Light to Negative on Breadboard.
Step 4: 4. Under the 330-ohm Resistors You Can Just Add a Red Wire and a Blue Wire, (green Wire Optional) That Goes to -5 and -3 on the Arduino
Step 5: 5. Connect a Wire That Goes From Ground to Negative on Bread Board, Then Connect a Wire That Goes From 5v to Positive on Bread Board.
Step 6: 6. Add a Photo Resistor to the Bread Board. Try to Put It Next to the Light.
Step 7: 7. Under the Left Leg of the Photo Resistor Add a Red Wire That Goes to Positive on the Bread Board
Step 8: 8. at This Point You Want to Add a Regular Resistor, That Needs to Be Placed Horizontally From the Right Leg of the Photo Resistor
Step 9: 9. Precisely Under the Right Leg of the Regular Resistor, Place a Wire Going From A0 on the Arduino Just Underneath the Right Leg of the Regular Resistor
Step 10: 10. Under the Left Leg of the Regular Resistor Add a Black Wire Going to Negative on Bread Board
Step 11: Add Temp Piece to Bread Board, Try to Keep It in Line With the Photo Resistor
Step 12: Add Wire From A1 to Middle Leg on Temp Piece
Step 13: Add Red Wire From First Leg on Temp Piece to Positive on Breadboard
Step 14: Add Wire From Third Leg of Temp Piece to Negative on Breadboard
