Classroom Ideas

Could be shown when learning about light sources. You could stop the clip frequently and invite the children to comment on how light and shadows behave, eg "What happens to the shadows of the palm trees as the sun moves across the sky? How does the sundial show the time? What is a shadow puppet?".Ask the children to note down all the light sources which are shown in the clip.
