Groundhog Day Science Shadow Activities for Preschoolers
Your preschooler can learn about science with a few fun-filled Groundhog Day shadow activities. Not only are these ideas ideal for celebrating the February winter-time holiday, but they can help your little learner to explore new concepts and build new skills!
Shadows In the Morning, Afternoon and Evening
Punxsutawney Phil may see (or not see) his shadow early in the morning. But this doesn’t mean your child can only explore shadows in the a.m. Take your kiddo for a walk at different times of the day. Look for the sun and try to cast a shadow. Ask your child to describe the direction and size of the shadow during different times of the day. Add an extra step to this science activity and take photos of the shadows. Print the pictures to compare each shadow.
Sun and Cloud Experiment
How do the clouds affect shadows? Ask your child this question to kick off a shadow-play science experiment. Go outside on a sunny and a cloudy day. Compare the shadows. If your child can’t see their shadow, discuss the possible reasons why.
Your child won’t only see shadows outdoors. If the winter weather won’t cooperate, find creative ways to cast shadows inside. Craft a Phil Groundhog Day puppet using card stock paper and craft sticks. Hold the puppet up to artificial light sources or near a window to see what happens!
