This article briefly shares about a five-book series called "I Wonder Why?". They share the ideas that students will be learning and show several images from the book. The illustrations are captivating and imaginative. They share at the very end how student can use shadow play to explore this concept! "These books explore the marvels of light, color, machines, sound, and other phenomena related to physical science".
