Shadows

Shadows tell us that light travels in straight lines. We can draw a ray (or streak) of light as a straight line on  a piece of paper.

This is a better shadow picture. Can you see why? When was it taken, in the morning or at night?

A sundial is a clock. Some people still use them in their gardens

As the sun passes across the sky during the day, a shadow is cast of a stick in the middle of a dial, which shows the time.
