Shadow Animals

This Shadow Animals lesson plan also includes:

It's not just a lesson plan about animal adaptations; it's also a lesson plan about shadows! Young investigators discuss how animals can use shadowy shades and camouflage to hide from predators or stalk their prey. They watch as their teacher makes shadow puppet animals with her hands; this leads to a discussion on how light and shadows work. The lesson plan culminates in a writing activity, where learners compose a paragraph describing the nature of light, shadow, and camouflage.
