Silhouette Activities with Free Printable Worksheets

A silhouette is like a shadow that shows the dark shape of something against a bright background. It's the outline or edge of an object or person that you can see when they are in front of a light. Silhouettes are usually black or very dark and don't show the details inside, just the shape on the outside. They can look like the shape of a person, an animal, or anything else you can imagine!
