Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Light

Curriculum subtopic:   Changes in Shadows

Worksheet Overview

Me and my shadow - we go everywhere together.  Well, that'd be pretty much true, as long as there's some light to make a shadow. But what happens when there's more light or less light? What happens when the Sun moves across the sky as the day progresses? Is my shadow affected?


In this worksheet you'll have the chance to explore these sorts of ideas, to put your knowledge to the test and also to build on that knowledge.
