According to Ms. Bahar, BSB’s teacher, shadow activities and experiments can help children learn what a shadow is, and, how shadows are formed by way of experience.
“Interactive indoor and outdoor shadow activities for elementary-aged kids are perfect year-round fun at home or in the classroom”.
What Children Learned

-Children make shadows with their bodies and other objects.
-Children observe that a shadow can show an object’s shape, but it can’t show colors or details.
-Students change a shadow’s shape by moving/turning their body or the object, or by moving the light source.
-Children combine shadows to make different shadow shapes.
-Students discover that each light source directed at an object will create a shadow
