This resource includes a PowerPoint and a fill in the blank notes handout to introduce students to the concept of the day and night cycle. It discusses what causes day and night as well as introduces important vocabulary such as orbit, revolve, and axis. It discusses sunrise and sunsets and shows students how shadows change depending on the time of the day. The fill in the blank notes handout is a perfect way for students to take the notes from the PowerPoint.
This resource is aligned to the following standard:
- Students will learn to explain the day and night cycle of the earth using a model.
I hope you and your students find this resource helpful! Please remember to leave feedback!
