You are running around in your garden on a bright, sunny day, but you aren't alone. It seems that everywhere you go, something is following you. When you walk slowly, it walks slowly; and when you run, it runs! But you aren't being chased by a person - it's just your shadow!
A shadow is the dark shape made when something blocks light. You must have a source of light in order to have shadows.
Some sources of light include the sun, a lightbulb in your room, a torch, or a campfire that you sit around and roast marshmallows. All kinds of things are great at blocking that light and making shadows, including trees, fences, buildings - and you!
Today you will be exploring shadows and using them in your art work.
For this activity we have put all of your instructions in the PowerPoint below.
