Light and Shadow!

Happy Belated Groundhogs Day!
We are lucky that our Science Instructional Calendar lined up so that we were studying Light and Shadows on February 2nd this year.  With all the standards that we have to fit in, it's great to have a reason to celebrate :-)
This year my kids did some cute Groundhog's day writing, talking about what their life would be like as a groundhog.  I was really happy with and amused by their finished products!
We also talk about how to make a shadow, and different light sources.  Because I feel our Science Resources are sometimes lacking, I created a Light and Shadow Unit for my students.  My friend The Lesson Plan Diva got to use some of these activities in her classroom today and said her students really enjoyed them.  Click here to grab your copy!

And here is an awesome Mini-book freebie, your students will love being authors and illustrators!
