Creating Shadows

Today year 3 went outside with their sculptures. First we found a place where the sun was and then we started drawing around the shadows. Lots of times the shadows moved around and sometimes the wind blew. But when we didn’t hold our sculptures, the wind would blow it as if it was a balloon.

Some people went in the shed that was on the playground because there was less wind. But the sun wasn’t in the shed, so we couldn’t see the shadows that we’ve drawn (we needed to shade it in). After we shaded it in, we moved around the playground, so the shadow moved around.

We learned that a shadow is formed when something blocks the light so it forms a shadow.
