Making Shadow Pictures

Today, the children were listening to a story involving shadows. It created a lot of discussion about how we get shadows and why they look different sizes. In the afternoon, we used a projector and a blank screen to project the shadows of toy animals for the children to identify and then they made their own patterns with their hands. We will continue the theme by having torches in the playroom for the children to investigate how the size of the shadow will change depending how close the torch is to the item.
