Shadows at Gardiners

June 22, 2017

Shadows at Gardiners 001Students in Ms. Vining's first grade class are enjoying the beautiful weather while learning about light, shadows, and how the Earth moves. Students worked cooperatively with partners to trace their shadows three times while standing in the same spot; once in the morning, noon, and later in the afternoon. Students were amazed to see how their shadows changed size and moved throughout the day. In fact, the late afternoon shadow was exactly the opposite as the morning shadow! Students learned that shadows are formed when an object blocks the light. In this case, their bodies were blocking the sun. Our shadows move and change throughout the day because the Earth moves as it spins on its axis. What a fun way to learn about light, shadows, and Earth's movement!
