Exploring with Light and Shadow

It's Magic!

En Español


Some of the most magical experiences come from the simplest materials. Bring out some flashlights and see what magic explorations happen.

This experience supports development in several of the Early Learning Science Goals.

  • Develop beginning skills in the use of science and engineering practices, such as observing, asking questions, solving problems, and drawing conclusions.
  • Identify, describe, and compare the physical properties of objects.
  • Begin to understand basic safety practices one must follow when exploring and engaging in science and engineering investigations.
  • Use nonstandard and standard scientific tools for investigation.
