A Shadow (from the sun) is created when sunlight hits a solid object.
Today we made a homemade sundial out of a small flower pot and a small flag pole, we then used a sharpie to mark on the pot where the shadow fell across the pot from the pole. I didn’t get out as early as I wanted but I think they got they point after we did check on it a couple of times today. After marking the sundial for the first time we went for a walk and observed objects casting shadows. We found all kinds of things casting shadows from very small like an acorn to large like out barn. It is a beautiful fall day over in in my little area of the incredible world that our God Created!
