This term we are studying ‘Planet Earth and Beyond’. Part of this Inquiry includes looking at how we get shadows, as well as day and night. Over the term we will be doing different investigations to better our understanding. Below is a sample of my current thinking.
We have used chalk to trace around our shadow to see how it changes. I have noticed that in the morning the shadow is long but it gets shorter. Then in the afternoon it starts getting longer again. The shadow also moved around.
I wonder why it gets longer & shorter?
