# Finally the sun came out

Finally the sun stayed out long enough for us to explore how the sun creates shadows.  Year 3 were challenged to make a variety of shadows tall, thin, big and small. They all worked really hard and came up with some amazing ideas. We pose the question:

What happens to our shadow when we face the sun?

Does our shadow when we turn away from the sun?
