Shadow Casting

In Science, Year 6 have been investigating shadows.

 

We made figures out of tin foil and then used torches to cast shadows onto card.  We explored what happened to the shadow when we moved the torch.

 

What do you think we noticed when the torch was moved closer to the figure?

 

We have also been investigating shadows further, using our maths knowledge to plot graphs showing the relationship between the height of the shadow and distance of the light source from the target object.
