Planting the Seeds of Science
An online resource to get younger kids thinking about the differences between day and night.
This online resource is a downloadable PDF containing modules of work 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?).
