This interactive presentation includes:

  • an introduction to the concept of shadows
  • an animation showing how a shadow alters in size and shape as it moves closer to and away from a source of light
  • an animation showing how the position of the sun in winter and summer alters the shape and length of shadows
  • an interactive and printable worksheet

By carrying out these interactive activities pupils will understand how shadows are formed, what happens to the shape and size of shadows as we move an object, how shadows change at different times of the day and how shadows appear different in summer and winter.
