We used our overhead projector again but this time we used it to trace circles.
This activity allowed the children individual time with the projector. They were able to manipulate bottle caps on the surface of the projector while observing them move on the wall. We asked them to try to get all the bottle caps onto a piece of paper we taped to the wall.
They also had the opportunity to trace the circles that were projected onto the paper.
This tracing activity gave them an opportunity to understand that if they stand in front of the light the image was blocked. They had to step to the side to trace the circles.
