Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different shadows being shown in each of the photos. I have collected together some of my best teaching resources about shadows and I think they would make a lovely lesson. There is the game of guess the shadow, followed by reviewing the key words about shadows and a creative writing task to complete. In addition, I have added a teacher guide which explains how to complete another 31 different fun tasks using these resources. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
