Mystery Science: Could a Statue's Shadow Move?

In this Mystery, students investigate what it takes to make a stationary object’s shadow move.

In the activity, Moving Shadows, students use flashlights and paper gnomes to explore how moving the position of a light makes shadows move. Students relate these observations to shadows changing throughout the day and the Sun’s position moving across the sky.
