Class 4 enjoyed experimenting and investigating shadows this week. They wanted to find out whether certain materials created a coloured or textured shadow! After planning and predicting, they discovered that coloured transparent materials create a coloured shadow (eg. acetate), that coloured translucent materials show a little bit of colour but a fainter shadow as the light scatters (eg. tissue paper), and that opaque materials create a dark, black shadow (eg. card)
Here are some of the materials we tested:

I really enjoyed this lesson because we got to learn something new and experiment creatively. I thought the acetate worked the best because it was transparent; transparent means always see-through, translucent means sometimes see through and opaque means NOT see through.
