Science - Shadow hunting.

As part of our light topic, we started to think about what type of materials make a shadow. We were introduced to the vocabulary of ‘opaque’, ‘transparent’ and ‘translucent’. Once we understood what each word meant, we went on a shadow hunt to determine which objects fit into each category. We discovered that the frame on windows was opaque, as this cast a very dark shadow, where the glass was transparent because it let all the light through and left no shadow at all.
