Let me start off by saying this book is a really fun book. It's by Dr. Seuss and is a must read. (If you can not find the book you can also listen to it on Youtube) This book goes threw the shapes of different things by looking at the shadows they make.
This makes for a fun activity of going outside on a sunny day and seeing what other shadows we could find. We started by finding our own and each others shadows. We did things like jumping and running to see how our shadows follow us. Then we went on to different objects.
^This was his Lego tower and car. One made a long shadow and one a short shadow.
Our van witch made a big shadow!
Our trash can, flower, mailbox, flag and flag pole were more we found. We talked about how some shadows are tiny, thin, and some were big. We talked about how the sun hitting different objects made the shadows and how each shadow outline the shape of the objects it hit.
We even found that our house had a shadow and that it was cooler in the shadow then in the sun.
