Worksheet Overview

Light and shadows are inextricably linked - that means that you cannot have a shadow without a source of light. But what about the object that the light is shining on - does the shadow depend upon what that object is made of? If it's see-through, dark-coloured, made of plastic, does that make a difference?


In this worksheet you'll have the chance to explore questions like these, putting your understanding to the test and also helping that understanding to grow.
