This 1-page handout has been adapted from an article by the University of Northern Iowa Regents’ Center for Early Developmental Education in Cedar Falls Iowa. The handout summarizes the developmental stages that children progress through as they learn to understand shadows along with key points to support children’s exploration with light and shadow.
This scavenger hunt can be done as a group or individually, depending on the age and ability of your children. It supports children’s observation skills as they search to find matches to the colors on the page. This is a great tool that can be used almost anywhere: in the classroom, on the playground or during a neighborhood walk.
