Year 3 Scientists

In Elder class, the children worked together in small groups to set up an investigation to answer the scientific question: What happens to a shadow as you move an object away from the light source?

Children used a tape measure to measure the distance in centimetres between the light source and the object, recording their results on a table.

In the next lesson, we will be analysing our results to look for a pattern and to make a generalisation.  We will present our data as a bar graph.
