What patterns can we see in the day time sky? What patterns can we see in the nighttime sky? Students will use this worksheet to make observations of the objects they see in the daytime and nighttime skies. It will help students find the patterns that distinguish the different characteristics of the sky. Students will be able to draw an illustration of what they see as well as write about the observation.
Students will be able to:
Identify the sun and the moon
Illustrate characteristics of the sky such as day (light=sun), night (dark=moon appears)
Show the patterns of the sky (how the sun appears to move across the sky and how the moon appears as it goes through its current phase)
