Light and Shadows 2

In this worksheet, students will be challenged to look not just at how shadows form but the effect of moving the light source or the object creating the shadow.

'Light and Shadows 2' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Year:  Year 6 Science worksheets

Curriculum topic:   Light

Curriculum subtopic:   Shadow Shapes

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

In your previous work on shadows you have found out that when light from a luminous source falls on an object, like a vase, that object blocks some of the light rays which then bounce off it. This means that they don't reach the area behind the object and that causes an area of darkness to form which we call a shadow.



In this worksheet we'll consider how the shadow formed is affected by where the object is in relation to the light.
