How are shadows formed?

Hippo, Home Slider, TV

We worked as a class to create this display board which explains how the rotation of the Earth creates day and night, therefore creating shadows.

 

We began to explain the position of the sun throughout different times of the day.

This then led us onto the relative position of the sun to create a shadow.

Some children imagined what day and night on Earth would look like from space!

Do you think it can be day time across the whole planet at the same time?
