Shadow Puppets

Yesterday in Science, the Bluebirds in the year 3 bubble made shadow puppets.

We cut out the animal shapes from the home learning timetable (Science on Wednesday) and Sellotaped them onto sticks – you could also use lollypop sticks.

We turned all the lights off in the classroom and investigated where in the classroom made the best shadows.

We held the shadow puppets up against a dark background and shone the torch onto the puppet. As the paper puppet was opaque, it blocked the light from the torch and caused a shadow on the wall.
