Light and Shadow

 As part of science this past week, we studied light and shadow.  We have a small wooden shelf that the children place various objects upon.  They shine a flashlight to see the shadow of the object on the wall.  It is fun to explore how the shadows can change when the light is pulled back and forth. 
In the afternoons, we brought in a big light and put paper on the wall.  The children turned out the overhead lights and then took turns tracing each other's shadow on the paper.  This child traced the pink tower's shadow and then colored it in.
