Quack and Peep find a flashlight and have fun making shadows.


  • Night Light (video)

Key Science Concepts

  • You can make shadows with your body and other objects.
  • Indoors, you can change the size of a shadow by moving your body or an object closer to or farther from the light.


Before watching: Tell children that they are going to watch a PEEP episode in which Peep and Quack discover a flashlight and use it to make shadows.

After watching: Ask,

  • How did Peep and Quack make shadows with the flashlight?
  • How did they change the size of their shadows? Did what they were doing remind you of any shadow activities you’ve done? Explain. 
  • Even though Peep is smaller than Quack, how was he able to make his shadow larger than Quack’s shadow?
  • What do you think you could do to a shadow if you wanted to make it grow?
