CASTING SHADOWS

Nov 28, 2019Science, Year 6

6R had great fun investigating: what a shadow is; how a shadow is formed and whether a shadow will always be the same size. We had a brilliant time creating our very own shadow puppet theatres to enable us to investigate these lines of enquiry. We found out that a shadow is the dark shape that is formed when an object blocks the light from the light source; a shadow is formed when light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object, and the closer an object is to the light source, the larger its shadow.
