Shadows, Light & the Equinox

An overdue post, we have been studying light. How shadows move. Light waves, cones and rods. Kinds of light and of course, the Spring Equinox. We made small tin foil figures and used a flashlight to move around it so we could better understand how shadows are cast. How the higher the light source, the shorter the shadow. How the rotation of the earth around the light source, sun, creates the longer days and shorter nights.
