Heat=Energy and Shadows

So we have been learning about heat and energy and how the sun heats the Earth, air and water! And also how the sun and objects create shadows.

We did an all day experiment to see what the sun heated the fastest, the empty jar won :). We checked the temperatures every two hours.

And we made shadow portraits! The boys loved this activity. Kevin and Adam did the drawing and then they all colored their own to their likeness!

  1. The study of nature is a very interesting one. It can fascinate both young and older students, because it is always exciting to fund out how our planet Earth works. I will also be looking forward for a follow-up on this very post, maybe you could advise me on some activities that could follow these studies you have been doing. I also love this topic because it can give the children the motivation to be creative and imaginative. And the Essay Online Store has plenty of articles proving that creative kids tend to do better and try harder at schools.
