This past week we made a visit to the Botanic Gardens here in Singapore. The trip supported our ongoing investigation of light, dark, and shadows and our developing understandings of the connections between the three. It also introduced a new phenomenon: reflections. We enjoyed our search for shadows and reflections in the Ginger Garden and around the Symphony Lake and photographed what we saw using the iPads. We even saw a giant monitor lizard beside one of the ponds!
The day after our field trip, we reflected on our visit to the Botanic Gardens. We talked about our favourite parts and the things we saw. We drew in our reflection journals and discussed as a group. Keep following our blog to see how we are using the photographs we took and the observations we made to further our understandings of how shadows and reflections work and what the differences between them are.
