What is a shadow?

How is a shadow formed? you may like to watch this clip.

Have you ever noticed your shadow changes size?

Have a go at measuring your own shadow across the day.

Stand outside in the morning and draw around your shadow. If you can’t do that, put a toy on a piece of paper and draw around their shadow.

Stand in exactly the same place at lunch time and then later in the afternoon and draw your shadow again. What do you notice? Why do you think this is?


We will continue to look at shadows next week
