Shadows

This morning we went out side to look at our shadows and and find out what is a shadow. I learnt that to create a shadow you need the sun and light. A shadow is like your reflection but you can’t actually see yourself. A shadow is created when the sun joined with light shine on you and that is when you can see yourself on the ground.depending on what way the sun is facing that depends on weather your shadow is infront or behind you.

We had to trace our shadow in the morning and we were going to see the difference between the morning and the afternoon. But when we went out in the afternoon we couldn’t see our shadow because the clouds were covering our shadows.

This is a photo of my shadow in the morning. But because the the sun was in the East it was shining on my back so my shadow was infront of me.

This is a photo of my shadow that was traced. We traced it because we wanted to see if the shadow would eventually change size because of the positioning of the sun.

In this photo you can’t see my shadow because the sun is being covered be all of the clouds.

This is a photo of my traced shadow in the afternoon bit because the sun is being covered by the clouds you can’t see me standing infront of my traced shadow.
