We also think that the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West. We think the Moon rises in the East and sets in the West as well. Here is what we thought;

Shadows

Today we learnt about shadows. We took photos of our shadows in the morning and in the afternoon. We traced around the shadows to mark where they were. To make a shadow, you need a source of light (the sun).

In the morning, my shadow was in front of me. This is because of the sun’s position. In the afternoon, I had no shadow. This is because the sun is hiding behind the clouds. Everything that had a shadow before had no shadow now.

I noticed that the shadows change because of the Sun’s position. The Sun makes the shadows because of the light. I learned all of this information today when we worked on shadows. These are some of the photos of my shadows.

This is my shadow in the morning.

Have you ever played shadow tiggy?

Shadow tiggy is when you play tiggy but instead of tagging people on their body you tag their shadow. It’s a really fun game to play with your friends!
