1. Connect one leg of the LDR ground on the arduino . The other leg of the LDR will go to analog input 0 (Any of the analog inputs can be used. 2. Connect one leg of the resistor to +5V on the arduino. The other leg of the resistor will go to the same analog input as the LDR (A0 in this case). This forms a potential divider.
