"Where there is light, there must be a shadow, and where there is shadow there must be light."Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

How Do We See Things?
When you have a light source, and it is on, you can see. If there was none in the world, it would be dark all of the time.

  • What is a light source?
  • What are the different types of light sources?
  • How does the sun affect shadows?


myViewBoard Originals Light and Shadow activities design based on the following learning objectives 🎯 for teachers to let students practice and participate in the class after they learned:

💡 How do light sources allow us to see other objects? Understand we see an object because light reflects off them into our eyes and light travels a straight line.
💡 Learn what a light source is and identify examples of different types of light sources: natural and artificial.
💡 Learn how shadows are created. Look at how the ideas of light and shadow are connected in the real world.

Practice the designed myViewBoard Originals Worksheet for 3rd - 4th-grade science students to look at the position of the sun in each picture and draw the shadow of the tree.
