Learning Journey - Science
This week our Learning Journey questions are 'What are shadows?', 'Which materials make the best shadows?' and 'Why are they not always the same size?'.
Monday - Create shadows using a torch and objects around your house. Take pictures of you making different shadows and then write down or record a video explaining how shadows are created.
Challenge - can you change the size of the shadow and make it bigger and smaller?
Tuesday - Shadow Size Investigation
Make a tin foil person using the video instructions. Investigate what happens to the size of the shadow depending on how far the torch is from the object.
Thursday - Shadow Puppet Show
Create characters for a shadow puppet show and perform it to your family. Record your puppet show and upload it to Dojo. You could create a shadow puppet show of your favourite story, Orion and the Dark, Charlotte's Web. It's up to you!
