Today we were learning to find out why shadows change size throughout the day.
First we made predictions about where we thought the shadow of an object would be with the sun shining at 9.00am in the morning, at 12.00 midday and at 3.00pm in the afternoon.
Then we used the following interactive activity to help us understand more
about shadows and the position of the sun.
We learnt that in the morning and in the afternoon an objects shadow is longer that it would be at midday when a shadow is shorter. In the afternoon and morning the sun is lower in the sky.
A shadow is made when an object blocks light.
