Shadow puppeteer Manju Gregory shows how to make and create a shadow puppet show. She shows how light travels away from a light source until it meets an object. When something blocks light travelling from a source, a shadow is made. We also see how light travels through translucent materials when the puppeteer creates colourful puppets using coloured translucent materials.
Children could make their own shadow puppets to test the hypothesis that light travels from a light source until it meets an object. Children could test transparent, translucent and opaque materials when creating their puppets.
