KS2 Science - Making Shadows

Description

This creative lesson idea for Year 3 science involves using a shadowgraph theatre to explain to Key Stage 2 pupils how light creates shadows.

The light source is a simple angle-poise lamp and the characters in the play are figures mounted on rods, brought to life by a professional puppeteer.

The puppets tell a traditional folk tale about a man with a hump back, and the magic fairies that help him to get rid of his hump.

The way characters appear and disappear illustrates particularly well how shadows are formed and how they change when put in front of a light source.
