Check It Out: Shadow Illustrations

Artist Vincent Bal turns the shadows of everyday objects into ingenious illustrations,

Consider adding this resource to your light unit or challenging your students who enjoy drawing to create a few shadow illustrations of their own to share with classmates.

This could be an activity for pairs or teams of students.

You just need a few common objects and a flashlight!


This suggestion came from Ian Byrd. He sends me an email every Friday with resources for gifted students. Most activities would work with the amazing variety of students we have in our classrooms. You might check out Byrdseed: Gifted Education and sign up for his free weekly email too!
