Technology Center

Watch live-action videos about outdoor shadows.

Materials

Play these videos in the Technology Center on the days indicated:

Day 3

Outdoor Shadows (1:30)

Kids do shadow play outside with NATURAL light, using full bodies, on different surfaces (ground, wall, broken wall).

Day 5

Shifting Shadows (1:30)

The kids are tracing the shadows of things on the playground and themselves, but the shadows seem to move and stretch with the passage of time.

Directions

Add the videos on the days indicated. The PEEP episodes, live-action videos, and online games should be made available after children have been introduced to them in a Morning Circle activity. Based on the recommendations of NAEYC and the American Pediatric Association, the Technology Center should only be used by children older than two.
