What Are Shadows?

Some things block light. That means no light can get through that thing. Human bodies block light.

When light can’t go through something, a dark area forms by the thing. This dark area is called a shadow. Have you seen your shadow before?

If you stand in the sun, you can usually see your shadow on the ground.

Try to play with your shadow! Make it bigger. Then make it smaller. Can you make it into different shapes?
