This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with light energy and investigating how shadows are formed.
Have you got a shadow? When does it appear? When does it go away? We all have a shadow sometimes. When studying energy in science at school you will have investigated shadows. When a ray of light energy is blocked, there is a shadow. The shadow is darker, because there is less light. Let’s investigate shadows a bit more.
