        Shifting Shadows

        Children use chalk to trace playground objects and their own shadows and then observe how the direction, size, and shape of the shadows change as the Sun gets higher in the sky, in this video from PEEP and the Big Wide World. Students can compare their own outdoor shadow experiences to the experiments in the video. They can also use the video as a guide for how to do their own shadow tracing experiments on their own playground or on another safe paved area.
