I made this for a morning exploration on Light and Shadows for Year3 class. we had various activities going on around the class where the answers could be found eg reflective vests worn in a cupboard with no lights, A light box and mirrors, A projector to make shadows, opaque and transparent materia More…ls and lots of torches. The children were free to roam to find and record the answers. Lots of misconceptions were straightened out!

Thank you, just what I needed. Shadows caused a great deal of confusion last week so I used this as homework to see how their thinking has or hasn't changed!

This worksheet is excellent for finding out the misconceptions that children are likely to have, thanks. Could you provide answers too.
