Shadows and lights

How to explain shadows to preschoolers

Jack the nimble may be able to jump a candlestick, but can he jump his own shadow? As he tries this new impressive trick, he discovers he cannot. He must learn how shadows are made and where they come from. With the sun as his teacher, he learns why shadows follow their source and therefore, cannot be jumped. This printable guided reading book and PowerPoint Show will help students learn to read too. They will be able to recite a fun rhyming text while tracking each word.
