Share the Day’s Discoveries

Review today’s explorations and ideas about shadows.

Display the photos taken during Making Many Shadows. Ask,

  • What happened in this photo? How many shadows do you see? How many flashlights do you think were turned on? Why?

Use children’s descriptions of what occurred during each photo to create short captions. Display these captions with their photos in the Shadow Museum learning center.

Next, look at the shadow art children made. Ask,

  • What did you add to your shadow tracing to make it an animal/plant?
  • What other animal or creature could you have made with the same shadow tracing?

Then ask the group to compare and contrast their shadow art. Ask,

  • How many of you saw animals in your shadow tracing? How many saw plants? What other things did you see?
