A worksheet that explores light and shadow and the principles of a fair test.

Use this science worksheet when investigating the relationship between the position of a light source and the size of a shadow.

This teaching resource asks students to explain their knowledge of the properties of light, formulate a hypothesis based on this knowledge and then design a fair test that investigates their prediction.

This worksheet could be used as part of a Physical Sciences unit on light in the upper years. It also serves as an assessment of student’s knowledge of the topic and their understanding of fair testing.
