Ever noticed how many interesting shadows can be seen throughout the day? Use the Shadows Journal to capture them! Go on a Shadow Hunt and take photos of Cool Shadows. Create a Mystery Shadows matching game by photographing objects and the shadows they make. With tools for children to record their observations, the Shadows Journal playfully introduces children to the science of shadows.
