Hi , I was wondering if somebody could help. I'm an NQT in reception/year 1. we are going to be looking at light and dark and want to create silhouettes with the children. What is the best way of doing this. I know I'm going to sound really stupid but I'm not sure if I'm going to be doing it right and just wanted to check. Am I right in thinking that silhouettes are created by shining a light on an object by the wall or pointing the light and object towards the floor and this blocks the light and creates a shadow and then should the children draw around the shadow on black card or shall I get them to do it on tracing paper first? I hope somebody can help because I really want to do this with the children but want to get it right.
