We have investigated the following:
Using a cardboard box, we investigated light and discovered that without light we cannot see and that light travels in straight lines. We then used the cardboard boxes to design a shadow puppet theatre.
Reflectors and Light:
We created our own cave in our class to investigate which colours could be seen best in the dark. We found that yellow was the best colour and so we now know to wear bright yellow clothing when in the dark so we can be seen!
We we completed several activities to investigate how mirrors reflect light and image.
We were learning about how shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque (solid) object.
We took it in turns to select an object and cast a shadow in a beam of light.
We then used the overhead projector to investigate different types of shadow and guess what shadow our class mates were trying to make.
