In the 12th Unit of the "Science Kids" series, the students learn about shadows! The main underlying concept taught throughout this packet is that a shadow is caused when an object blocks the light.
The “Science Kids” series of packets is intended to help teachers implement developmentally appropriate, hands-on science activities for children in Preschool, Kindergarten and the early grades. The activities in these packets are based on the scientific method and encourage inquiry-based learning.
Ten hands-on lessons about shadows are included:
★ Discovering Shadows
★ Outdoor Shadows
★ Is a Shadow Always Black?
★ A Moving Shadow
★ Big and Small Shadows
★ Shadow Detectives
★ Multiple Shadows
★ Shadow Tracings
★ Shadow Charades

This packet also includes extension activities and printables.
