This week in art Chestnut explored dinosaur shadows. The outcome of this lesson was to see the formation of a shadow and how each dinosaurs shadow is different due to its shape, size and markings. We began our lesson with a class discussion on shadows and how they are formed. Once the children understood how a shadow is developed, we then went to our outdoor playground with clipboards, white paper and pencils and sat in a circle under the beautiful sunshine. Each child chose a dinosaur and then placed it on their white piece of paper. A shadow then occurred which then allowed the children to form their dinosaur shadows.
