This week we have begun our unit on Shadows and Reflections. In this unit your child will explore shadows and reflections, using observations, experiments, and books to learn what makes a shadow and a reflection. This unit is a lot of fun with lots of mathematics, science, music, poetry and art activities!
OWLS Shadows and Reflections - Theme concepts
"Reflections are images thrown back from a shiny surface.
There must be light or there is no reflection.
Mirrors and still water reflect light well; dull surfaces do not.
If water is moving, its reflections is blurry.
Shadows are the dark areas made when an object blocks the light."
