Share the Day’s Discoveries

Review today’s explorations and ideas about shadows.

Gather children to discuss their experience playing Shadow Tag. Ask,

  • How is Shadow Tag different from normal tag?
  • What was hard about playing Shadow Tag? Do you think it’s harder than regular tag? Why?

Show children the photos you took of the shadows they observed during Moving Shadows. Discuss the children’s discoveries. Ask, What happened to the shadow you traced? How did it change?

Use the “How a Shadow Changes” chart and the photos you took of the shadows and tracings during the Moving Shadows activity to discuss the different ways shadows move and change. Add children’s descriptions to make captions for the photos. Place the photos and their captions in the Shadow Museum.
