3rd and 4th Class Explore the Effect of Distance of Light Source and Length of Shadows

Posted by: St. Oliver's N.S. | May 11, 2015 Comments Off on 3rd and 4th Class Explore the Effect of Distance of Light Source and Length of Shadows |

We discovered in 3rd and 4th that the shadows grow larger as the light source gets closer, contradictory to our initial predictions!

This investigation involved a lot of measurements and great teamwork!

We are going to chart our results using Google Sheets, so check out the webpage soon to see our charts.
