Light and Shadows Experiment

Science shadow experiment
We drew around Ellie's shadow and recorded the length of a metre sticks shadow at different times of the day, below are photographs of the results.

Look at these photos of the shadows of a metre stick and Ellie, can you remember what we did?
Can you explain why the shadows moved at different times?
Can you explain why the shadows changed size throughout the day?
Please post your answers.

  1. The experiments look great (and so does your blog!)

  2. Great science work, Year 3. Did you know that sundials use shadows to tell the time? You might be able to see what one looks like if you go to a garden centre.
