Year 3 Light and Shadows- Red and Orange Groups.

We would like the red and orange groups in each class to have a go at the following questions. Even if you’re not in red or orange group, why don’t you have a go too!

  1. What happens to a shadow when the light source gets closer to the object?
  2. How could you make a shadow shorter or longer?
  3. What type of object creates the darkest shadow?


Do some research to find out what happens to your shadow during the day.
