Investigating Shadows

Can you use your puppet and torch to make a shadow on the wall?

Can you use your hole punch to make holes in the puppet?

Make a shadow on the wall again using your puppet. What can you see?

Why can you see spots of light on the wall within the shape of your shadow puppet?

What is a shadow?

Drawing shadows

Find a sunny place and put your objects on a piece of paper so that it makes a shadow. Does the shadow look different if you put the object in different places? Draw round the shadow and see if it looks like your object.
