Wednesday Explorers ~ Shadows!

The groundhog saw his shadow a couple weeks ago. You can see yours, too, if you go outside when the sun is shining. Or even if the moon is bright.

So this week take a five minute field trip. Head outside and look for shadows.

Where will you find them? Pretty much anywhere where an object is blocking light. A tree trunk, a leaf, the stem of a winter weed, a bunch of friends....

Things to jot down in your notebook:
  • do some surfaces create crisper shadow outlines than others?
  • are there certain times of the day that are better for shadow-catching?
  • what's the skinniest thing you can find a shadow of?
  • make a list of all the things that cast shadows in your neighborhood.
