Beatriz (7) asks “What happens to the the light at night?”

How do we tackle this question Beatriz? Lets tackle it by looking at light being used.

Let us see if we can make light move around a table. For this experiment you will need 3 plastic mirrors some plasticine and a torch. Light can be ‘bounced off’ an object so can it be bounced off mirrors?

So your task is to bounce the light from the torch around the four sides of the table. Think about what you did to make it happen.

Also let us look at shadows. Collect a variety of objects, a torch and a screen (maybe mounted in some way). Shine the torch at the object, what do you see on the screen.

Why do you think the shadow is formed? Can you change the shape of the shadow? Can you get more than one shadow?
