As children explore light and shadows, the caregiver provides guidance to build their skills and knowledge. The teacher explains and demonstrates how to make shadows, how to make shadows bigger or smaller, and how sunlight affects their shadows outside. Guiding children instead of directing them allows them to try out their ideas to find solutions on their own.
