Science Poems;Shadows

This week, we have been learning about how light travels and shadows.Did you know that light travels in straight lines and it never bends? Light can travel through transparent objects like glass, windows.Only a small portion of it can travel through translucent objects such as water bottles and  frosted glass.However no light can travel through opaque objects like a table or a chair.So, it forms a shadow and this is how shadows are formed.This inspired us to write poems about shadows and this is mine.

I have a little shadow stuck to me,
When the clouds come out, she likes to flee,
She really is a coward,you see)
When it is dark and gloomy she plays hide and seek,
But when the sun is shining,she takes a little peek.

Whenever I am on my way to school,
She sticks to me like a silly little fool,
Though not always little, she is sometimes terrifically tall,
And sometimes, my shadow is hardly there at all!

Although she seems dark and vicious,
I would never think she is malicious,
She likes to hop and bounce about,
Especially when the sun is out!
