Recommended Posts

I have lots of torches and a mental block!! any ideas for investigating light and dark ( science focus) would appreciated, we have a bears cave so we could look at objects in the dark....any other inspirational ideas would be welcome at this late hour!!!!!!

How about making a simple shadow puppet box, using a large cardboard box and grese proof paper, the children could use their hands or card to make simple puppets and tell stories.


If you have an overhead projector, try using toys on it to create shadows or cellophane, what happens- different ways of exploring light.


what happens if they put coloured cellophane over the ends of the torch?


I have done this before with reception and they have enjoyed it.


Hope this helps
