Discovering Darkness

On an early morning, Sid wakes up while it's still dark outside. Sid and his friends investigate and observe what happens when a light source is completely blocked--creating darkness. It turns out everything stays the same in the dark, because darkness is just the absence of light...which means there's nothing to be afraid of in the dark! (Educational objective - Darkness)
