Science: Does a Shadow Get Bigger When the Light Source is Further Away?

To wrap up our Science topic this term, we investigated how a light source affects shadows. We learned that shadows are made when light is blocked by an opaque object, but we needed to investigate if the distance of the light source affected the size of the shadow too.

We found out:
Benjamin: “My prediction was right because when we put the torch further from the blocks, the shadow got smaller.”
Sukaina: “The closer the light gets, the bigger the shadow will get.”
Florence: “I found that the closer the light is, the bigger the shadow is.”
