Abstract

In the golden age of radio, listeners were told that "only The Shadow knows." 1.,amont Cranston, better known as The Shadow, was the enlightened character with all of the answers to solve repeated mysteries. The Shadow is no longer with us, but the use of shadow puppetry in the elementary classroom can help solve mysteries and bring "life" to the study of light and shadow. Toe use of shadow puppets should allow students to achieve the following objectives: to create shadows by putting objects between a light source and a screen or surface; to recognize objects by their shape; to change the shape and size of shadows by repositioning the objects or the light source; to identify transparent, translucent, and opaque objects.
