Good Friends: The Sun and the Moon
by Tiny Space Adventures
Learn about the Sun and Moon and differences/similarities between day and night.
Can be used as a read-aloud or can have students make their own. Focuses on the concept that the Sun is out only during the day, but the Moon can be seen during the day and night.
Fun activity sheets!
Day and Night: color the sun & part of earth in nighttime; circle items found during the daytime & nighttime.
As Different as Day and Night: color, cut and; glue items/activities under the correct heading: day or night.
(Note:If looking at the image preview, the students glue these pictures to a second 'Day and Night' handout not seen.)
My Daytime Observations: Draw observations of things seen during the daytime sky for 4 days.
My Nighttime Observations: Draw observations of things seen during the nighttime sky for 4 days.
Basic background information on the Sun, Day and Night, Why the Sun Moves Across the Sky & the Phases of the Moon is also provided for you to share with your students.
