Planting the Seeds of Science - Is The Grass Still Green at Night?
Publication Date: January, 2010
Type of Resource: Unit of Work
A unit of work about the differences between day and night.
It contains modules of work for younger students around the themes of the environment, astronomy, forensic science, cleanliness and solar energy and how they relate to the day–night cycle.
As an example, one part of this resource deals with how children relate and build on their experiences of daytime light and night-time dark (e.g., is the grass still green at night?).
