For the past few weeks 5th graders had been working on their flying animations by creating the figure, landscape, and then animating both together on the computer. View them here. So we projected their landscapes digitally on the board and took out our toy dinosaurs. What? Doesn't every art room have a stash of toy dinosaurs? We created a shadow by holding it in front of the projector and snapped a photo.

This isn't the first time Dryden students worked with shadows.
